Cinema Canada [Sep 1981]

Cinema Canada

Earlier Title: Canadian Cinematography (1961-67)

Cinema Canada (1967-89) was the primary trade journal for film and television production in Canada. The magazine originated as Canadian Cinematography (1961-67), published by the Canadian Society of Cinematographers, but was renamed to appeal to a wider readership and to recognize a degree of maturity of the national film production industry. Cinema Canada hosted a new slate of stridently nationalist film critics, scholars and writers. The magazine’s emergence coincided with a threshold, of sorts, when a national cinema became recognizable in character as having an independence from Hollywood genres, even if output remained relatively small in quantity. The publication’s archives are housed at the Toronto International Film Festival’s Film Reference Library.
