Formerly produced by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television, the 14th annual event has been presented by the Motion Picture Production Industry Association of BC (MPPIA) since 2004, raising more than $80,000 for local charities including Habitat for Humanity, A Loving Spoonful, the Paralympic Foundation, Projections Youth Project, and for the past two years, the Greater Vancouver Foodbank.
The fundraiser has also supported the MPPIA Short Film Award for the past two years. A partnership initiative of MPPIA, British Columbia Film and the Whistler Film Festival, the Award was established to support the career development of BC-based filmmakers. With a $15,000 cash award and up to $100,000 in supplies and services sponsored by the BC motion picture community, the award is one of the most valuable of its kind in Canada.
