Denis Seguin of Toronto has won The Canadian Film Centre's REEL Challenge for his film "It's My Right." The contest was organized to choose a short film that best dealt with the issues of creators' rights and copyright protection from a creator's perspectives. "It's My Right" featured several Canadian filmmakers and other artists talking about their intellectual property rights as artists. Responding to the announcement, Seguin said, ā€œIā€™m delighted to have had my film recognized by the REEL Challenge jury. Copyright is not an abstract notion but a matter of survival for an artist. This is the message I wanted to convey through the faces and voices of the creators who appear in the film.ā€

Seguin received CDN$10,000 for winning the contest. The second and third place films, Nick Kalish's "Respect the C" and Spencer Maybee's "Respect the Original," both received CDN$2,500.
