A representative of the TINFF selection committee said in a note to Ebigieson: “On behalf of the selection committee, congratulations on being selected for the TINFF Awards 2023! You were chosen because you have demonstrated excellence, the highest ethical standards, integrity and civic and social duty both inside and outside of the film, media and entertainment industries.

“Every year, TINFF honours people from both inside and outside of our community. This year, you are one of only a handful of people in your field to receive this accolade.”

Ebigieson said: “I am honoured. Thank you TINFF for the recognition.”
