Sarah Polley’s Stories We Tell (pictured) took the best feature length documentary prize at the Canadian Screen Awards’ (CSA) Broadcast Gala in Toronto last night (March 3).

The win came as the best short documentary prize went to Annette Clarke and Ariel Nasr’s NFB-backed doc The Boxing Girls of Kabul; and CBC show Dragons’ Den picked up the prize for best reality/competition program or series.

Meanwhile, George Stroumboulopoulos won the award for best host in a variety, lifestyle, reality/competition, performing arts or talk program or series.

The awards came after the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television (ACCT) last week named 46 CSA winners in the News & Sports, Documentary, Lifestyle and Reality programming categories.

Last night’s ceremony drew the 2013 CSAs to a close. This year’s inaugural awards show was the result of ACCT’s previous decision to merge the Genies and the Geminis, Canada’s former respective awards shows for film and TV.
