The Changing Face of Canadian Cinema

Variety critic, film analyst, and native Canadian Leonard Klady will moderate this inquiry into recent Canadian production. Often marginalized commercially and sometimes aesthetically, Canadian cinema has recently emerged with a spate of work which has received critical acclaim as well as some theatrical success. Directors such as Atom Egoyan, Bruce McDonald, Guy Maddin, and Fran├žois Girard are just a few of those whose work has been given accolades. Now Canadian cinema is poised to become even more commercially potent and decidedly changed from what it was (indeed, work by filmmakers who are gay, Asian, and black will lend it a completely different face). This panel produced with Telefilm Canada, will feature major figures from the Canadian film industry and community. Cosponsored by Pacific Title and Art Studio.
