ABOUT THE CMPA INDIESCREEN AWARDS

Celebrating Excellence in Canadian Feature Film Production

Established in 2006, the CMPA Indiescreen Awards recognize producers whose vision and entrepreneurship demonstrate a commitment to and passion for producing Canadian feature films. Two awards are handed out every year: the Established Producer Award and the Kevin Tierney Emerging Producer Award.

Past recipients include Damon D’Oliveira (2022, Brother), Anand Ramayya (2021, Donkeyhead), Jennifer Holness (2020, Stateless), Simone Urdl and Jennifer Weiss (2018, Falls Around Her), Roger Frappier (2016, Two Lovers and a Bear), Robert Lantos (2015, Remember), Nancy Grant (2014, Mommy) and Kevin Tierney (2009, The Trotsky).

The Kevin Tierney Emerging Producer Award was added to the Indiescreen Awards program in 2016 to highlight the extraordinary talents of up-and-coming producers with a bright career ahead.

Winners of both awards are chosen by two separate juries out of the independent Canadian films that premiered or are slated to premiere theatrically, at a film festival or on an online streaming service that year.

Two awards are handed out every year:

  • The Established Producer Award celebrates a producer’s filmmaking accomplishments over the course of their career to date, and includes a $20,000 prize.
  • The Kevin Tierney Emerging Producer Award recognizes the impressive potential of an up-and-coming producer, and includes a $10,000 prize.

Five nominees will be selected in each category by juries consisting of five industry leaders, and chaired by the previous year’s Indiescreen Award winners.

Nominated producers are encouraged to attend the awards, in-person in Halifax, Nova Scotia on Thursday, September 12, 2024. The CMPA will provide out-of-province nominees with a travel stipend to attend the awards ceremony in Halifax.
