9th Canadian Film Awards
DateJune 15, 1957
LocationKing Edward Hotel, Toronto, Ontario
Hosted byLeonard Brockington

The 9th Canadian Film Awards were held on June 15, 1957 to honour achievements in Canadian film.[1] The ceremony was hosted by Leonard Brockington.

Due to dissatisfaction with the organization of the awards, there were no awards presented in almost any of the traditional film categories; instead, an increased number of special awards were given to individuals and organizations, and only the Amateur Film award was presented to films.[2]
