Toronto filmmaker David Cronenberg has won this year’s Clyde Gilmour Award from the Toronto Film Critics Association.

The honour allows the “Crash” writer/director to bestow $50,000 in production services to a fellow filmmaker of his choice. The TFCA says Cronenberg will reveal his pick in the days to come.

The award recognizes a Canadian figure in the film industry who has made a significant contribution to Canadian cinema. Cronenberg’s 22nd film “Crimes of the Future” is set for release later this year.

The TFCA also announced that two-spirit L’nu filmmaker Bretten Hannam won the $10,000 Stella Artois Jay Scott Prize for an emerging artist. Hannam wrote and directed “Wildhood,” which was recently nominated for six Canadian Screen Awards.

Meanwhile, freelance film critic Rachel Ho, who writes for Exclaim!, That Shelf and POV Magazine, won an award for aspiring film reviewers.

The TFCA’s top prize — the $100,000 Rogers Best Canadian Film Award — will be announced at a gala dinner in Toronto on March 7.

The nominees are: “Beans,” directed by Tracey Deer; “Night Raiders,” directed by Danis Goulet; and “Scarborough,” directed by Shasha Nakhai and Rich Williamson.
