Why we wrote the book
About Canadian cinema
In the last decade, Canadian Cinema has blossomed from a cinema of a few select internationally known auteurs, like David Cronenberg and Denys Arcand, into one of the most exciting national cinemas. Quebec has produced auteurs that have gone on to successful English-language careers in the US, from Jean-Marc Vallée to Denis Villeneuve, while anglophone filmmakers have carved out a niche of culturally specific, unapologetically Canadian films that still resonate with a broader audience.
The 2019 Canadian Cinema Yearbook is the inaugural biannual ebook spotlighting the best in Canadian Cinema through interviews with the filmmakers and Seventh Row commentary to contextualize the films. This book is the go to resource for discovering great Canadian Cinema that may have otherwise passed under-the-radar, including the filmmakers that are sure to be big names in the future. You won’t find in-depth interviews with all of this talent anywhere else. Filmmakers take you behind the scenes into how they conceive of and make their films, from a technical perspective, and we make sure it’s an accessible read with no background knowledge about filmmaking.
