David Cronenberg is one of the great filmmakers of our time. He is also a proud Torontonian.
The Toronto Film Critics Association awarded him the Company 3 Clyde Gilmour Award this year.
The prize includes $50,000 in services to a filmmaker of their choice. Cronenberg will announce his appointment in the coming days.
A well deserved honor
David Cronenberg first gained attention for “body horror” films such as Dead ringtones and Fly. Its themes expanded in later films, such as A history of violence, but their audacity remained. Cronenberg returns to horror this year with his 22nd film, Future Crimesalso with Viggo Mortensen.
Two other honors
- The Toronto Film Critics Association also awarded the Stella Artois Jay Scott Award for Emerging Artist to Bretten Hannam.
- The Emerging Critic Award goes to lawyer-turned-film critic Rachel Ho.
The Toronto Film Critics Association is still waiting to announce the grand prize for Best Canadian Film, which includes a $100,000 prize. The winner will be announced at the 25th Annual TFCA Awards Gala Dinner held at the Omni King Edward Hotel Toronto on Monday, March 7, 2022 and hosted by ET Canada’s Sangita Patel.
