Lindalee Tracey Award Fund
Lindalee Tracey was an award-winning filmmaker, author, entertainer and mother. She was passionate about bringing issues of social justice into her work, and championed people who are often ignored, underestimated or marginalized. Equally, she celebrated those who rise above disadvantage.
On October 14, 2006, the Ottawa-born author, journalist, filmmaker and mother succumbed to breast cancer. She was just 49 years of age, but in her all-too-brief life Lindalee accomplished so much, inspired many and touched human hearts around the world. To commemorate Lindalee’s unique approach to her life and work, her family and friends established The Lindalee Tracey Award, presented annually to an emerging Canadian filmmaker who works in the spirit of Lindalee – with passion, humanity, a strong sense of social justice and a sense of humour.
The Lindalee Tracey Award is presented annually at the Hot Docs International Documentary Film Festival, held in Toronto each spring.
