The 10th Genie Awards were held on March 22, 1989. This was in the middle of a strike at the CBC, causing the ceremony to be scaled down and several nominees to boycott the awards in sympathy; although the ceremony was still aired by CBC Television, the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television was forced to produce the broadcast alone.
