TFCA Peter Wintonick Documentary Fund
In 2014, the TFCA established the Peter Wintonick Documentary Fund to commemorate the legacy of Peter Wintonick, a writer, director and editor whose films include Manufacturing Consent, and who won the 2006 Governor General’s Award for Media. Wintonick, who died in November, was known around the world as Canada’s doc ambassador, and his spirit of mentorship will carry on with this award.
In its inaugural year, the fund went to Wintonick’s daughter, filmmaker Mira Burt-Wintonick.
