Every year, White Pine Pictures presents the Lindalee Tracey Award to honour an emerging Canadian filmmaker working in the spirit of Lindalee Tracey, whose films reflect a passionate point of view, a strong sense of social justice and “a joie de vivre”.

Lindalee Tracey was an award-winning filmmaker, author, entertainer and also a beloved wife and mother. Through her extensive body of work and indefatigable personality, Lindalee brought great joy to the world. She was passionate about bringing issues of social justice into her work, and championed people who are often ignored, underestimated or forgotten. Equally, she celebrated those who rise above disadvantage. Lindalee passed away on October 19, 2006, at age 49, after a five-year battle with breast cancer.
The award is presented annually at the Hot Docs International Documentary Film Festival, held in Toronto each spring. The winner will be awarded $5,000 in cash from the Lindalee Tracey Fund, a $5,000 in kind voucher from Sim for camera equipment rentals, and a beautiful hand-blown glass sculpture by Andrew Kuntz.
