British film producer Donald Ranvaud has died, aged 62.
Ranvaud had been in Canada attending the Montreal World Film Festival, where he was serving as a competition juror, when he unexpectedly passed away.
A cause of death has yet to be revealed, but reports suggest he was found unresponsive in his hotel room on Monday morning (05Sep16).
The festival is expected to continue as planned until Wednesday (07Sep16), although organisers are now planning to hold a moment of silence during the final night's awards ceremony to honour Ranvaud.
A festival spokeswoman tells The Hollywood Reporter, "He was a very good friend of all of us and the festival, he was the life of the party. We will acknowledge his contributions at the ceremony."
Ranvaud's film career had earned him producing credits on Oscar-nominated films like City of God, The Constant Gardener, and Farewell My Concubine.
He also established himself as a film journalist, launching Framework magazine in 1975, while also penning articles for other publications including The Guardian, American Film, and Sight and Sound.
