The Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television is a national, non-profit, professional association dedicated to the promotion, recognition and celebration of exceptional achievements in Canadian film, television and digital media.  Unifying industry professionals across Canada, the Academy is a vital force representing all screen-based industries.
The Academy’s Canadian Screen Week celebrates excellence in film, English-language television, and digital media through a multi-platform, national program of events and celebrations culminating in the Canadian Screen Awards Broadcast Gala carried live on CBC, Sunday March 11th, 2018.
The Academy honours the best in French-language television and digital media through Les Prix Gemeaux, which will be held on September 17, 2017. The awards have evolved from humble, pre-television beginnings in 1949 at Ottawa’s Little Elgin Theatre to today’s star-studded red carpet events.  In 2013, the Canadian Screen Awards were born as the result of a merger of the Gemini Awards and Genie Awards—the Academy’s previous awards presentations for English-language television and film productions.
