Norman Jewison honoured by Toronto movie critics

The Toronto Film Critics Association is honouring a screen veteran and a film newcomer with awards.

Multiple Oscar-nominated filmmaker Norman Jewison has won the Technicolor Clyde Gilmour Award, given to Canadians whose work enriches the understanding and appreciation of film in their native country.

And Matt Johnson, director, co-writer and star of the high-school drama The Dirties, wins the $5,000 Scotiabank Jay Scott Prize for an emerging artist.

As winner of the Gilmour Award, Jewison will be invited to give $50,000 in Technicolor services to a filmmaker of his choosing.
The TFCA, made up of Toronto-based journalists and broadcasters specializing in film criticism and commentary, will announce their picks for top films, casts and filmmakers Dec. 17, along with the three finalists for the $100,000 Rogers Best Canadian Film Award.

That winner will also be announced Jan. 7 at the TFCA gala at the Carlu. Actor and filmmaker Sarah Polley, who won Canada’s richest film prize last year for her documentary Stories We Tell, will present the award.
