An excellence in cinema award has been created in honour of Jay Scott, the late film critic for The Globe and Mail. The Toronto Film Critics Association announced yesterday the Jay Scott Prize for emerging talent, which comes with a cheque for $5,000.

Scott, who died in 1993, was Canada's most influential film critic. Last year, the TFCA also launched the $10,000 Rogers Award for best Canadian feature film, which will be presented this year by director David Cronenberg on Jan. 12 in Toronto.

The TFCA Awards will take place at an event in Toronto on Dec. 16. Staff
