The Freddies, also known as the International Health and Medical Media Awards, were established 30 years ago to bring together the fields of medical science, education and the arts for an international competition devoted to educational health and medical productions. The awards have come to be known as "the Oscars of the health and medical community."

The Man Who Learned to Fall is produced by Beitel/Lazar Productions Inc., an award winning Canadian film production company that is widely recognized for its enduring social documentaries.

Garry Beitel is a documentary filmmaker whose work has been broadcast on television for over 20 years. Barry Lazar is a long established journalist and documentary producer. When asked how The Man Who Learned to Fall can help people become more aware about ALS, Mr. Lazar said, “Our film shows that ALS is a complex disease. It has implications for caregivers as much as it does for those who suffer. Phil Simmons was a remarkable man. Part of the way that he dealt with ALS was by seeking beauty in the world around him and maintaining loving relationships. To be able to film his last year of life was truly inspiring.”
