Over the weekend the inaugural Canadian Screen Awards were presented over three days ending off with a 2-hour broadcast on Sunday March 3, 2013. The are the new combination awards previously known separately as the Genies (for Canadian film) and Gemini's (for Canadian TV) awarded by The Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television to recognize excellence in film, television and digital media productions and now are done all together.
