2018 Prix Iris Winners
(June 4, 2018 – Toronto, ON) It seemed like a fun night, watching the 2nd annual Prix Iris on television. It seemed more like an association dinner, restricted to members only. That’s not a dig. There was an intimacy to the broadcast that we suspect comes from a relatively small industry, compared to Hollywood for example, where if everybody doesn’t know everybody they certain know of their fellow travellers and show them the respect their careers have allowed. It was a relatively short program and we will shorten it even more by highlighting the winners in the main categories from last night’s Gala award ceremony.
Following are the films and people nominated for a Prix Iris, with the winning title or name indicated in bold:
Nicole Bélanger (Les rois mongols), Darren Curtis (Boost), Sophie Dupuis (Chien de garde), Robert Morin (Le problème d’infiltration), Gabriel Sabourin (C’est le coeur qui meurt en dernier)
