The 13th annual Genie Awards were held on November 22, 1992, and honoured Canadian films released in late 1991 and 1992. They were dominated by the Canadian/British/Japanese co-production Naked Lunch.

The ceremony was held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto.[1] The ceremony was originally slated to be hosted by John Candy, but he pulled out in a dispute over advance advertising which he perceived as making fun of his weight; Leslie Nielsen instead stepped in as host.[1]

Nominations were announced on October 13.[2]
