John Dunning (film producer) Social Network




In 2017, the Canadian Screen Awards introduced the new John Dunning Discovery Award, presented to honour the year’s best Canadian microbudget film. In 2019, it was merged with the former Claude Jutra Award, presented for the year’s best debut film by a first-time director, into the contemporary John Dunning Best First Feature Award.


Dunning’s memoirs, You’re Not Dead until You’re Forgotten, were published in 2014 by McGill-Queen’s University Press.


In June 2011, shortly before his death in September of that year, the Toronto Film Critics Association announced that Dunning would receive its Clyde Gilmour Award for lifetime achievement, with Cronenberg stating that “John Dunning is the unacknowledged godfather of an entire generation of Canadian filmmakers. I still consider him my movie mentor.” The award was posthumously presented to Dunning’s son Greg, at a ceremony in January 2012.


Dunning and Link were honoured for their contributions to the Canadian film industry at the 14th Genie Awards and were inducted into the Canadian Film and Television Hall of Fame in 2007.


Lions Gate Entertainment Corporation (LGEC) was formed in 1997 by Frank Giustra, a banker. LGEC purchased Cinépix and kept its leadership; Dunning, in turn, left the company. Cinépix was renamed Lions Gate Films on January 13, 1998.


By 1997, Cinépix had a New York-based U.S. distribution arm and owned 56 percent of Ciné-Groupe, an animated film production company.


From 1989 to 1994, Cinépix was partners with Famous Players in C/FP Distribution, which was renamed Cinépix Film Properties (C/FP). In 1994, Cinépix bought Famous Players’ stake in the organization.


Dunning launched Cinépix with partner André Link in Montreal in the early 1960s. Initially a distribution company, Cinépix’s first production was the 1969 erotic drama Valérie, which earned $1 million at the box office. Cinépix produced early work by David Cronenberg (Shivers) and Ivan Reitman (Meatballs). The company also distributed art-house films including the grunge rock documentary Hype, Vincent Gallo’s Buffalo ’66, and SICK: The Life & Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist.


John Dunning (April 27, 1927 – September 19, 2011) was a pioneering Canadian film producer from Montreal who co-founded the Canadian film production company Cinépix and produced early works by notable Canadian directors David Cronenberg and Ivan Reitman. Dunning launched Cinépix with partner André Link in Montreal in the early 1960s. Their biggest commercial success—and the first Canadian box office hit—came with Reitman’s Meatballs (1979).
