 Frances-Anne Solomon To Receive “WIFT Toronto Crystal Award for Mentorship”


 Award-winning filmmaker and producer Frances-Anne
Solomon will receive the 2022 “WIFT Toronto Crystal Award
for Mentorship” in recognition of her outstanding contribution
in helping to motivate, guide and support emerging and mid-
career professionals in the Canadian screen-based media
industry, often serving as a role model to younger
entrepreneurs as they grow in their own careers.

The 35th WIFT Toronto Crystal Awards will take place at a
Gala Luncheon on Tuesday December 6, 2022, at the
Arcadian Court in Downtown Toronto. Established in 1988,
these prestigious awards have honoured over one hundred and
sixty pioneers who have made significant contributions in film,
television, and the interactive digital media industries — for
excellence in creativity, entrepreneurship, innovation,
mentorship, and leadership.

  Frances-Anne was recently recognized as one of the top-100
Most Influential Black Canadians at Afroglobal Television’s
Excellence Awards that took place at Meridian Arts Centre on
October 29. An award-winning filmmaker, writer, producer,
director, curator and distributor in film, television, and radio, this
multi-talented entrepreneur — through her CaribbeanTales
Media Group (CTMG) — has built and provides an effective
pipeline of essential media industry products and services for
BIPOC creators and audience that includes Training,
Production, Events and Distribution.

Solomon began her career at the BBC in England as a TV
Drama Producer, before founding CTMG in 2001. Her
extensive directing credits include the feature films HERO
(2019), A Winter Tale (2008), and the sitcom Lord Have
Mercy! (2001). She has lectured at the University of the West
Indies, New York University and Duke University. She is the
recipient of many international awards and accolades and is a
member of The Directors’ Branch Executive of The Academy of
Motion Picture Arts And Sciences.
