His close friend and musician Ray Laidlaw described him as a "man of the people" and an "incredible talent".
Laidlaw, from the band Lindisfarne, said he had known Wonfor since they were in their early 20s and the director was an "amazing inspiration" to him.
"He had an amazing zest for life and was a wonderful bloke to be around," he told BBC Look North.

In 1997, Wonfor won a Grammy award for best music video for the Beatles Anthology, an eight-part TV series chronicling the history of the band.
He previously told the BBC: "It was amazing, the greatest thrill of my life. We didn't know what to expect we never dreamed there would be crowds like that, it was immense.
"I couldn't believe the size of him, like a brick outhouse, but so gentle and he did everything that was expected of him."
