It’s a Wrap on the Canadian Film Centre Fundraising Gala 2024!

On May 16, 2024, the Canadian entertainment industry got together at Rebel, Toronto to celebrate the CFC Gala: Decades, an annual fundraising event in support of the next generation of Canadian storytellers. This year was all the more special as we also paid tribute to CFC founder, Norman Jewison. With the support of the gala sponsors and guests, CFC raised more than $580,000 to go towards entrance scholarships and their mission to elevate extraordinary talent through their world-renowned programs.

As over 400 guests travelled through the decades, we relived some of Norman’s remarkable contributions to Canadian cinema and watched a touching tribute in his memory put together by his closest friends and colleagues, including the CFC board members and alumni. 

From insightful conversations at ‘Norman’s Corner’ and a delicious three-course meal to onsite activations, including Air Canada’s photo experience, the Lipstick Lounge by MAC Cosmetics, and the official CFC Digital Auction, there was something for everyone at the CFC gala!

Electrifying performances from The Collective, Adaline, Shakura S’Aida and Starting From Scratch, also made the entire night highly memorable.

As co-hosts of the event, team SpinVFX was happy and proud to support our CEO and Executive Producer, Neishaw Ali who was recently appointed as the new chair of the CFC board, as she spoke about the continuous impact that CFC has on Canadian storytelling. 

It was a night filled with music, laughter and ‘Spin Flings’. Take a quick look as we turned back the clock and celebrated decades of Canadian filmmaking and the life and legacy of Norman Jewison:

We would like to thank the Canadian Film Centre for this incredible night and for everything that they do to encourage emerging talent and future Canadian storytellers.
