The Awards Gala was Live Streamed at the close of CIFF 2020, on September 19th. You won't want to miss this fun, entertaining and suspenseful event. It will be available for streaming again on Sunday, September 20 at 8pm.

In addition to unveiling the festival winners, two "Achievement" awards will be conferred during the Gala. A Lifetime Achievement Award, and a Faith Achievement Award. 

In this virtual festival the winners will be announced, but there will not be an opportunity for them to give acceptance speeches.  Therefore in the days following the Gala we will be reaching out to all winners to allow them the opportunity to record acceptance speeches which will then be posted in the Gala section of this site for you to view.
