The annual provincial awards are often tipped in favor of the more active and muscular Calgary film industry – some years more than others – but any recognition of our cinematic ecosystem is a win for creative innovation and economic diversification.

The 10 Edmonton wins are broad, though three went to a single production.

Score G Productions, which often produces sports-related films, took home the documentary story of UFC middleweight Michael Bisping, directed by Michael Hamilton, Best Unscripted Production Over 30 Minutes for Bisping. In the trade, Scott Dodds took on screenwriter (Unscripted Over 30 Minutes) Rosie for the same film. And Best Overall Sound (Unscripted Over 30 Minutes) joins many Rosies on the shelves of Johnny Blerot and Carey Opper.
