For 14 consecutive years, 107 entries in the Borsos Competition for Best Canadian Feature have exuded the creative fire and artistry embodied by legendary Canadian filmmaker Philip Borsos, best known for his inspiring work on the Genie Award-winning films The Grey Fox (82), and Bethune: The Making of a Hero (90). For 2017, WFF’s 14th annual Borsos Competition will continue to celebrate these qualities by showcasing Canadian feature films that display independent vision, original directorial style and the diversity of talent found in Canadian independent film. An international jury of three will award the $15,000 CDN prize, the second largest cash prize for a Canadian feature in the country after TIFF. All Canadian feature films at the Festival with Western Canadian premiere status are eligible for the Borsos Competition and its awards. The Borsos Jury will also award Best Performance, Best Screenplay, Best Director and Best Cinematography. An international jury of three will award a $15,000 CDN prize.
