On Tuesday March 4, The Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television presented the 47th Canadian Screen Awards for the categories in News & Sports, Documentary, Lifestyle, Reality and Digital Media. The awards were hosted by comedian Steve Patterson at the Sheraton Centre in Toronto and Kensington picked up 2 awards for our hit international series, Museum Secrets.
CSA for Best Factual Program or Series
We’re thrilled about the win, which is a confirmation from our peers of the quality of our show. Although we won’t be producing Museum Secrets anymore, we look forward to producing more new series that we are currently developing, and we hope they will do just as well!
Museum Secrets won Best Factual Program or Series, and producers Robert Lang, Tara Jan, Bill Robertson and Marianne Kushmaniuk were there to accept the award.
Meanwhile, editor Graeme Ball received an award for Best Picture Editing in an Information Program or Series, for his work on the Museum Secrets episode “Inside the National Maritime Museum, London.”
What’s nice about the Academy is that although they’ve been around for 65 years, they have continued to evolve. “Our industry has gone through massive changes, entering into an age of digital media and continues to evolve into a multi-platform universe, and the Academy is proud to recognize the talented Canadians delivering excellence in television and digital media,” says Helga Stephenson, Academy CEO.
To catch the televised awards show, tune into CBC for the 2-Hour Live Broadcast Gala on Sunday March 9, 2014 @ 8pm EST.
Congratulations to the entire team who worked on Museum Secrets, and to our other industry colleagues who participated in the Canadian Screen Awards this year!
