The new Canadian prizes for film, television and digital media will be known as the Canadian Screen Awards, the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television announced today.
The first gala for the combined awards will be held March 3, and
hosted by Canadian comedian Martin Short. CBC is the official broadcast
The academy announced earlier this year that the Genie Awards for
Canadian English-language film and the Geminis for Canadian TV would be combined. The decision came after extensive consultation with the film and television industries.
A new logo that will be reflected in the winning statuette was also unveiled Tuesday in Toronto.
The awards will be extended to digital media – though the academy did
not specify how it would approach cellphone or internet video.
There's no word yet on the number of awards to be handed out for Canadian TV, film and digital achievement.
The Geminis had upwards of 100 categories and the Genie Awards more than 20.
