Ross Leslie
All of us at FilmOntario were saddened to hear of Ross Leslie’s passing on March 13. Ross was one of FilmOntario’s original board members and a friend and mentor to many in the industry. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him, and we are sending condolences to all his family and friends.

FilmOntario has made a donation to the AFC in Ross’s honour. Details regarding the arrangements for the visitation and funeral can be found online here.

Congratulations to all the Canadian Screen Award Winners
Congratulations to all the FilmOntario members who were nominated for and won Canadian Screen Awards last week. The list of all the nominees and winners can be found on the Academy website and include accolades for those working in front of and behind the camera.

Overall, it has been a very successful award season for Ontario this year. We have compiled an impressive list of award-winning Ontario shows on the FilmOntario website, which we encourage you to check out. Congratulations to everyone involved in all of these shows, and thank you for making Ontario such a great jurisdiction for screen-based content creation!
