Canadian Producer Don Carmody to Receive Toronto Tribute

Canadian Film Centre will roast and toast the Oscar-winning film producer after he passed the 100-film industry milestone.


TORONTO -- Academy Award-winning Canadian film producer Don Carmody will be toasted and roasted with a career tribute in April at a benefit for Norman Jewison’s Canadian Film Centre in Toronto.

Carmody will be recognized for passing the 100 movie credit mark after a 40-year producing career, which includes an Oscar for the 2001 hit musical Chicago, which was shot in Toronto, and the recent videogame adaptations Silent Hill and Resident Evil: Apocalypse, which have both passed the $100 million box office mark overseas.

Carmody will also be honored for his collaborations with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck on Good Will Hunting, Halle Berry and Penelope Cruz on Gothika, and for producing David Cronenberg’s earliest feature films, including Shivers, Rabid and The Brood.

The Carmody tribute will take place April 16 at the Four Season Hotel in Toronto, and will also benefit a children's charity in memory of Julie Gourdier.
