Thessaloniki mourns Peter Wintonick

Dimitri Eipides, director of The Thessaloniki Documentary Festival and the Thessaloniki International Film Festival, as well as its staff, mourn the passing of Peter Wintonick. He passed away on November 18 in his hometown of Montreal.
Canadian Wintonick, a brilliant figure and strong voice of the documentary world, was a director, producer, journalist, programmer and, perhaps most importantly, a mentor to generations of documentary professionals. He tirelessly traveled all over the planet and spread his vast knowledge of and love for documentary filmmaking. For his work, Canada awarded him in 2006 with its highest cultural honor, the Governor General's Award for Visual and Media Arts.
Wintonick attended the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival since its inception and was beloved by all. 

Our thoughts go out to his family and his friends all over the world.
