CMPA’s 2020 Indiescreen Awards postponed due to COVID-19

TORONTO, July 22, 2020 – Today, the Canadian Media Producers Association made the following statement regarding the 2020 Indiescreen Awards:

“In light of the ongoing public health crisis and the fact that many Canadian film festivals have had to cancel or scale back their offerings, the CMPA has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Indiescreen Awards, which were planned to take place in September.

In assessing how and when we can bring back the Indiescreen Awards, we are committed to finding a solution that will celebrate the best in Canadian feature film, and shine a spotlight on the independent producers who bring these projects to life.”


The Canadian Media Producers Association is the national advocacy organization for independent producers, representing hundreds of companies engaged in the development, production, and distribution of English-language content made for television, cinema, and digital media channels. We work to promote the continued success of the Canadian production sector and to ensure a bright future for the diverse content made by our members for both domestic and international audiences.
