Cyril Drabinsky, president and CEO of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group, will be honored with the Canadian Society of Cinematographers' Bill Hilson Award during a March 22 gala at Toronto's Westin Harbour Castle.

The award is presented for "outstanding contributions to the development of Canada's motion picture industry." It's named for the individual who created film quality-control procedures at the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. 

"The switch from photochemical processing to file-based digital technologies was a seismic upheaval for our industry," said CSC president Joan Hutton in a statement. "Cyril Drabinsky was one of the first to see and seize this new technology's potential to open new doors and vistas for filmmakers."
