Program Details

Get ready for some great entertainment!  With only a few days until the show, get ready for some laughs, good food and good times!

The Alberta Film and Television Awards will be hosted by Edmonton stand up comedian and 630 CHED radio personality Andrew Grose (pictured right). Andrew has been conspiring with last year’s host Steve Patterson to find out which of our industry members deserve a good roasting.

While Andrew Grose hosts on stage, Mark Connolly (pictured left), co-host of CBC News Edmonton, will be sipping champagne with the winners of the evening in the Winners Circle (live-streamed online at rosieawards.com).

To add to the entertainment, musical guests PEAR, the husband and wife duo Denis and Lynae Dufresne who headlined international fiddle sensation Barrage, is going to bring something Sweet N Gritty.

A Special Achievement Award will be given to Dave Thomas (pictured right), a founding member of the seminal TV Comedy series SCTV, which was filmed in Edmonton from 1980-82.  The Friend of the Industry Award will be given jointly to FAVA (Film & Video Arts Society of Alberta) and CSIF (Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers).

A Lifetime Achievement Award will also be given to Marg Pullishy posthumously. Marg Pullishy has been part of the film and television industry in Edmonton for over three decades. It was as a regular contributor in front of the camera with CFRN that she first introduced audiences to “Wednesday’s Child,” which highlighted the pressing need for adoption in the province.

Come celebrate the year’s achievements in the Alberta Film, Television, Digital Media Industries. If you cannot make the event, be sure to catch the live streaming of the Winners’ Circle (thank you speeches), at rosieawards.com and follow the live twitter feed (@RosieAwards, #RosieAwards) to see what is happening on stage.
