The 2016 Canadian Screen Week culminated yesterday evening with the live broadcast of the Canadian Screen Awards (CSAs) on CBC, hosted by Canadian comedian Norm Macdonald. Throughout the week, including last night’s awards ceremony, the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television handed out awards in 132 categories – 24 in film, 101 in television and 7 in digital media. We are pleased to announce that 14 CFC alumni were honoured with 2016 CSAs in 13 categories over the course of Canadian Screen Week.

Our very own Chief Digital Officer Ana Serrano was also presented with the 2016 Digital Media Trailblazing Award at a gala event throughout Canadian Screen Week. From all of us at the CFC, we extend our sincere congratulations to Ana on this well-deserved honour in recognition of her exceptional contributions to Canada’s digital media industry.
