ABOUT THE TOM BERNER AWARD
The Tom Berner Award was created in 2002 to honour Tom Berner, who was an extraordinary supporter of independent filmmaking in Toronto and throughout Canada. Tom retired from DELUXE Laboratories in 2001 after being actively involved with organizations like the National Screen Institute's Drama Prize Program, the OMDC's Calling Card Program, and the CFC's Worldwide Short Film Festival. Tom tirelessly assisted hundreds of independent filmmakers who approached him for advice and help. Tom Berner passed away in December 2004.
Initiated in 2002 by filmmakers Sarah Abbott and Mark Wihak, the Tom Berner Award recognizes individuals who provide “extraordinary support for independent filmmaking” in Toronto. Please note: “Extraordinary” indicates activities above and beyond any obligations of employment or business, and reflect contributions over a sustained period. The Award is administered by the Images Festival and LIFT and presented each year at Images' Awards Ceremony.
