What Last Yearís Winners are Saying:

Super Channelís award gave us the credibility boost we needed to access broadcasters at the Hot Docs Forum. Paul Saltzman, our mentor, guided us in creative development and the whole process was worth significantly more than the sum of its parts. The Award changed the course of our documentary.

Melanie Wood and Greg Masuda, Producers/Directors, "Goddess of Mercy"

The Super Channel award launched a new chapter of my film's development. Michael McMahon was an incredible mentor who helped me navigate a complex new marketplace at Hot Docs, while the meetings the award facilitated have contributed to and affirmed the creative process of the story.
