Indiescreen Awards - 2021

Dec 09, 2021

Applications are now open for the 2021 CMPA Indiescreen Awards. Since 2006, the CMPA Indiescreen Awards have recognized producers whose vision and entrepreneurship demonstrate a commitment and passion for producing Canadian feature films. Two awards will be presented:

The Established Producer Award ($10,000), recognizing a producer’s filmmaking accomplishments over the course of their career to date

The Kevin Tierney Emerging Producer Award ($5,000), established in 2016, celebrating an up-and-coming “one-to-watch” in feature film production

This year, due to the ongoing uncertainty around COVID-19, the Indiescreen Awards will again be part of the CMPA’s annual conference, Prime Time, taking place virtually in early February 2022.

The CMPA is now accepting applications for both categories. To qualify, applicants must have acted as lead producer on a Canadian feature film that has or will premiere in the 2021 calendar year. The deadline to apply for the 2021 CMPA Indiescreen Awards is Thursday, December 9 at 12:00 pm ET / 9:00 am PT.

The CMPA Indiescreen Awards at Prime Time 2022 are brought to you in partnership with Telefilm Canada.
