  • Saskatchewan film tax credit story of 2012
    Monday December 31st 2012

    From a news standpoint in Regina, 2012 – the Year of the Dragon on the Chinese calendar – could be summed up as heads or tails. Whether a new head coach for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, a new mayor, and a new stadium, or the demise of the Canadian Wheat Board monopoly and the departure of longtime mayor Pat Fiacco from city politics, the news of 2012 reflected a year of beginnings and endings. When the province closed the door on Saskatchewan’s Film Employment Tax Credit, several film production companies chose to open a window elsewhere.

  • Spike Lee boycotts ‘Django Unchained’ to avoid being ‘disrespectful’
    Thursday December 27th 2012

    Spike Lee doesn’t have much to say about Quentin Tarantino’s new film about a slave-turned-gunslinger. When it comes to “Django Unchained” he simply won’t watch it. “It’d be disrespectful to my ancestors to see that film. That’s the only thing I’m going to say. I can’t disrespect my ancestors,” Lee[…]

    Thursday December 20th 2012

    Montreal is about to see its first new TV station in 15 years.

  • The Master named best film by Toronto film critics
    Tuesday December 18th 2012

    The Master rules with the Toronto Film Critics Association. Paul Thomas Anderson’s psychological period drama nabbed four of the group’s top awards – including best picture, best director and best screenplay, with co-star Philip Seymour Hoffman named best supporting actor. That makes Toronto critics the latest film group to break[…]

  • Film studio in talks for Ottawa sound stage suing City of Toronto over subsidy to rival
    Tuesday December 18th 2012

    A Toronto film studio that is in negotiations with the City of Ottawa to build a sound stage here is suing the city of Toronto over what it claims is an unfair subsidy to a rival film studio. Cinespace filed a suit against the Toronto Economic Development Company (TEDCO) in Superior Court of Justice last year, alleging that a 2009 city council resolution which made TEDCO a 20-per-cent owner in Pinewood Toronto Studios, was illegal. “It is the position of Cinespace that TEDCO and/or the City of Toronto has bonused (Pinewood) improperly, acted in bad faith, unfairly and in a discriminatory manner in enacting Bylaw 411, making it illegal and void,” Cinespace wrote in a statement of claim.
