TIFF’s The Cronenberg Project is the recipient of the 2014 Ontario Museum Association (OMA) Award for Excellence in Special Projects, for the combined nominations of the following components: the exhibition David Cronenberg: EvolutionDavid Cronenberg: Virtual Museum and the interactive Body/Mind/Change initiative. OCAD University was an academic partner in the project, along with Sheridan College, and York University.

“We are thrilled to be the recipient of the 2014 OMA Award for Excellence in Special Projects,” said Piers Handling, Director and CEO, TIFF. “The Cronenberg Project was a milestone achievement for TIFF: it included our first large-scale original touring exhibition David Cronenberg: Evolution which recently finished exhibiting at Amsterdam’s EYE, as well as our Virtual Museum which will continue to be an online resource for further scholarship on Cronenberg’s films, and Body/Mind/Change which brought together Cronenberg enthusiasts from all corners of the globe for one unique interactive experience.”
 
TIFF’s multi-platform celebration of the work of Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg was centred on the exhibition David Cronenberg: Evolution which charts Cronenberg’s growth as a filmmaker. With more than 300 original artifacts, visionary designs, as well as rare and unseen footage, the exhibition focuses on his longstanding fascination with the possibilities and perils of human evolution itself.
 
David Cronenberg: Virtual Museum is an online source that explores Cronenberg’s films through new scholarship and artistic explorations, including essays, academic writing, an interactive map and timeline, and a selection of behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with Cronenberg's past and present collaborators.  
 
Body/Mind/Change, a digital extension of David Cronenberg: Evolution, immerses audiences in a “Cronenbergian” world inspired by the film Videodrome, re-imagined for the 21st century and brought to life across three platforms — online, mobile, and real-world.
