As the Platinum Partner of the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television, CTV is supporting Canadian Screen Week from March 25 to 31.
Awards presentations begin Tuesday in Toronto with the CTV Gala Honouring Non-Fiction Programming hosted by THE BEAVERTON's Aisha Alfa and continue Wednesday with the CTV Gala Honouring Creative Fiction Storytelling hosted by Jann Arden from CTV’s new hit comedy JANN. Featuring Bell Media stars like Lisa LaFlamme, Marci Ien, Tara Spencer-Nairn, K. Trevor Wilson, Jennifer Hedger and Anne-Marie Mediwake, both galas will live stream on CTV.ca.
On Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm, CTV offers one-on-one talent meet and greets as part of Family Fan Day at Toronto’s Sony Centre for the Performing Arts. Guests of this free event will have the opportunity to pose for photos with ETALK’s Chloe Wilde and Tyrone Edwards, CARDINAL's Billy Campbell and CARTER's Jerry O’Connell. For families and young guests, Crave offers a quiet space to screen its children’s collection as well as to meet Crave’s Peppa Pig in person.
On Sunday, CARDINAL's Karine Vanasse hosts the Gala Honouring Cinematic Arts, a brand new afternoon event this year to celebrate achievements in film. That night, Jann Arden is back as a featured presenter in a comedy-focused Canadian Screen Awards broadcast gala alongside comedic stars Brent Butt (CORNER GAS ANIMATED), Jerry O’Connell, Jared Keeso and Nathan Dales (LETTERKENNY), and TSN’s JAY AND DAN.
