AGF PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD

Sponsored by one of the Festival’s major supporters, the AGF People’s Choice Award is voted on by Festival audiences – known worldwide for their enthusiasm and love of cinema. The 2004 award goes to Terry George’s HOTEL RWANDA, (United Kingdom/South Africa/Italy) the true story of an ordinary man whose love for his family inspired him to an extraordinary act of courage that saved the lives of more than one thousand helpless Rwandans during the 1994 genocide.

DISCOVERY AWARD

Pete Travis’ OMAGH (Ireland/UK) is the recipient of the Discovery Award. A powerful and intense story about the unsung victims and the grieving families left behind by a catastrophe, OMAGH examines the tragic 1998 IRA bombing of the small Irish market town of Omagh. The press corps, which consists of more than 750 international media, voted on the Discovery Award.

FIPRESCI PRIZE

The FIPRESCI Prize is awarded to New Zealand director Brad McGann’s IN MY FATHER’S DEN (New Zealand/UK) "for its emotional maturity, striking performances, and visual grace." IN MY FATHER'S DEN follows a prize winning war journalist as he returns to his remote New Zealand hometown after a 16-year absence and is forced to confront the secret that has surrounded him for his entire adult life. This prize is annually bestowed upon a feature film directed by an emerging filmmaker, and making its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The Festival welcomed an international FIPRESCI jury for the 13th consecutive year. The 2004 jury comprises president Henry Sheehan, (KPCC-FM and KCET-TV, USA), Katherine Tulich (Sunday Magazine and Seven Network Australia, Australia), and Norman Wilner (Metro Toronto, Canada).

This award acknowledges the fresh new talent emerging within Canadian cinema.

TORONTO – CITY AWARD FOR BEST CANADIAN FEATURE FILM
