A Tribe Called Red has garnered a spot in the Prism Prize’s Top 20 best Canadian music videos of the year. The videos are voted on by a jury of more than 120 Canadian music, film and media arts professionals. After viewing hundreds of music videos released in 2015, jurors selected the Prism Prize Top 20 based on originality, creativity, style, innovation and effective execution. The Ottawa-based group A Tribe Called Red hit the Top 20 with Suplex, directed by Jon Riera. “This was the best year for Canadian music videos ever, and a Top Ten list just couldn’t capture all the talent,” said Louis Calabro, director and founder of the Prism Prize. The Prism Prize Top Ten will be announced on March 22. The Prism Prize Screening and Awards Presentation at TIFF Bell Lightbox on May 15 will include a screening of the Top Ten videos, and award presentations including the $10,000 Grand Prize for best Canadian music video of the year; the Audience Award; the Special Achievement Award for artistic achievements and exceptional world-wide contribution to music video art; and the Arthur Lipsett Award for innovative and unique approaches to music video art.
