VIDEO: Canadian Screen Awards Announced

The Canadian Screen Awards. That's the name of the brand new award show set to honour and celebrate the best in Canadian television, film and digital media, as announced by the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television.


In addition to the details of the Canadian Screen Awards (which combines what were previously the Geminis and Genies), it was also revealed that CBC will broadcast the inaugural show on March 3, 2013 with Canadian comedy king Martin Short as host.


We were at the announcement and spoke with Julie Bristow - Executive Director, Studio & Unscripted Programming CBC Television - as well as ACCT CEO Helga Stephenson and chair Martin Katz.
