The awards honor outstanding works in film, television, and digital media productions. Both the film and television categories include innovative works made by young talent, and it is refreshing to see the unique work being done in the Canadian media industry.

Dolan’s film won the Grand Prix at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, and has been submitted as Canada’s entry for the 2017 Academy Awards.
