TIFF 2018: William F. White International Inc. TIFF VIP Reception @ TIFF Bell Lightbox (Sep 11, 2018)



For 30 years as the leading provider for the entertainment industry in Canada, William F. White International and the Cornweb Group (1988-2018) celebrated with their annual industry TIFF event.



Cornweb Group was founded by Chairman/CEO Paul Bronfman, in partnership with well-known legendary Hollywood producer/writer Stephen J. Cannell (A-Team, Rockford Files, 21 Jump Street, etc.) in 1998.



Comweb built and managed Canada’s first Hollywood style studio complex, North Shore Studios in Vancouver. The original home of the smash television series hit, The X-Files, North Shore Studios played a significant role in the growth of film and television production in Canada.

Another cause for celebration was the announcement of the Jay Switzer Comweb/William F. White Int’l Indigenous Creator Scholarship as a tribute to the late Canadian media figure. Administered through the Canadian Film Centre, the $100,000 award will be distributed over the next 10 years, a fitting tribute to a beloved figure in the industry.



As in past years, Vilmos Zsigmond/William F. White Cinematography Scholarship was awarded to a cinematography student, this year’s winner was Michael Kashuba.



As always, William F. White International lead the charge in the Canadian industry, with Whites Camera, Whites Lighting & Grip, Whites LES and Whites Specialty Equipment (WSE) as prominent providers to popular movie and TV productions including notable offerings: SHAZAM, Skyscraper, Charmed, Stephen King’s IT, The X-Files, Handmaid’s Tale, Designated Survivor, Hold the Dark and The Shape of Water to name a few.

Innovation is always key, with the introduction of Dactylcam Pro, Camera Car (Type One) to Alpha Stabilized Remote Head to meet the demanding needs of worldwide TV & Movie productions.

William F. White International again, was at the forefront of studio space expansion, with commitments to the Northern Ontario Film Industry, Pinewood Toronto Studios, and multiple-service offerings to include purpose-renovated film studios.

A special thank you to the team at William F. White International for another spectacular event!
