Local 145 (Vancouver, BC) member Eli Bennett was just nine years old when his father Daryl Bennett won the first ever Leo Award for Best Musical Score in a Feature Length Drama. This June both father and son were up for that same award and Eli took home the prize. Eli was nominated for his musical score to Believe: The True Story of Real Bearded Santas and Daryl for In the Spirit of Reconciliation in a Day.

The Leo Awards celebrate the best of British Columbia’s film and television industry. This was the first time in Leo Awards 20-year history that a father and son were contenders in the same category.
