David Miller, Vortex Media

We are absolutely shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of David Miller. David was a titan of the Canadian film industry and a great colleague. He was a huge supporter of BITS over the years and we have played a film that he produced almost every year of the festival. David was a guest on our panels and was always a kind person to catch up with at networking events. He will be greatly missed.
