Our annual Gala is a central event for the film and television industry in Canada. With 350 guests each year, the cocktail hour, dinner, awards and post-awards reception at Arcadian Court in Toronto are a wonderful way for vendors to mingle with members of our society. Our sponsors are an integral part of making the Gala the success that it is, and we welcome new sponsors to join us.
