60 Years, 100 Films: A Salute to Don Carmody

On April 16, 2011 a special tribute was held to honour producer Don Carmody's 60th birthday and 100 Film Milestone Achievement.

Proceeds from the event were donated to the Canadian Film Centre's Scholarship fund and Special Olympics (Kingston, Ontario), in memory of Julie Gourdier. Almost $30,000 was raised at the tribute.

Comedian Colin Mochrie hosted the evening with tributes and roasting from several of Carmody's colleagues and collaborators.
