The Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television’s Gemini Awards presentation, recognizing and celebrating excellence in Canadian English-language television, will include two new categories pertaining to research this year. The two new awards, for best editorial research and best visual research, have been met with great support from members of Canada’s documentary and non-fiction community. ‘Canada’s much vaunted reputation for non-fiction documentaries would be meager if not for the efforts of Canada’s editorial and visual researchers,’ said Kevin McMahon, director and partner at Primitive Entertainment, while Norm Bolen, President and CEO of the Canadian Film and Television Producers Association, says, ”Canada’s researchers are the unsung heroes quietly toiling away finding key information, developing angles and fleshing out storylines.’ Deadlines are approaching quickly, so producers should submit entries directly to Katie Lafferty, ACCT’s Gemini Awards Manager.
