The Shat To Be Honored With A Lifetime Achievement Award

The Shat To Be Honored With Lifetime Achievement Award

William "The Shat" Shatner is being honored at the Banff World Television Festival with their lifetime achievement award.  We assume the award is meant to honor his ability to create an adhoc cannon and mortally wound a gorn with it.  The Banff World Television Festival is the world's premiere television content creation event and annual forum for business and creative opportunities for those in television and new media.

The Festival will take place June 13-16, 2010 at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel in the Canadian Rockies. For the first time, the festival will run concurrently with nextMEDIA Banff, bringing together the television and digital media communities for a truly unique cross-platform event, offering networking, seminars, keynote speeches and pitching opportunities that reflect the growing convergence of television and digital media.

The Festival combines a prestigious international program competition, the Banff World Television Awards, with a comprehensive conference agenda. It is a marketplace of ideas, generating co-production deals, enabling new business relationships and bringing to light future trends of the industry. As well as honouring excellence in international television, the Festival provides a global platform for industry members to network, discuss, debate, and explore current issues and challenges.

“William Shatner is one of the most celebrated pop-culture icons in the 21st century and we are delighted to be honouring his career achievements at Banff,” said festival executive director Peter Vamos.

“His ability to keep pace with the times, leverage the latest industry and technology trends, and inject humour every step of the way have been the keys to an unbelievably successful, decades-long career. To stay on top throughout it all, particularly in such a tough, evolving industry, is truly inspiring.”
