Fil Fraser: A History of the Rosies

By | AB Film & TV Awards

AMPIA celebrates 43 years of the Alberta Film & Television Awards, aka The Rosies.  Few people know Alberta lead the way to establish the first film and television awards ceremony in Canada and it all started with Fil Fraser.  

Fil Fraser is an award-winning filmmaker, journalist, writer and human rights activist with an impressive career spanning more than half a century. Born in Montreal, Fraser headed west at the height of his career in the media industry, a time where he says, “you couldn’t turn on the radio or TV without seeing me there.” He was a Co-Anchor for CBC Edmonton’s news and public affairs program, the host of Talk Back – the most highly rated talk show on CJCA – from 1974-1979 and hosted his own program on ITV, The Fil Fraser Show.

The Alberta Film & Television Awards were founded in 1974 as a result of Fil Fraser’s conversation with Minister of Culture Horst Schmid. Fil shares on that experience and the very unique sculpture that became the first Rosie Award…
