  • Is Canada Ready for a Canadian Movie Channel?
    Thursday January 31st 2013

    There’s currently a proposal for a new Canadian TV specialty channel — Starlight TV — backed by many of the established movers and shakers in Canadian film. What that should be doing is getting the conversation going — about Canadian film. Where it’s been, where it is, and where is it going. Yet I’ve seen very little coverage of it — pro, con, or even just as a starting point for a debate. At least the proponents of this new channel are doing something — they are, so to speak, running an idea up the flag pole and seeing who will salute.

  • Canadians buying TV antennas to watch Super Bowl ads
    Thursday January 31st 2013

    Canadians close to border towns are scrambling to find over-the-air TV antennas and rabbit ears in time for the Super Bowl. Football fans, it seems, are just as excited about the highly-anticipated advertisements as they are about the outcome between Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. Very few of the U.S. ads, which companies spend millions of dollars to produce, air on Canadian cable or satellite broadcasts of the game. Talent fees, rights issues and even products differ between the U.S. and Canada. It all makes it more difficult for ads to air north of the border.

  • Cineplex plans film festival of classic movies
    Tuesday January 29th 2013

    A film festival made up of old favourites – from 2001: A Space Odyssey to Jaws – as well as the latest in cockney zombie cinema is coming to movie theatres around Canada. The Great Digital Film Festival, which runs Feb. 1 to 7, is a collection of 18 films that have been grouped into themes: a day of Indiana Jones movies, for instance, or a quadruple-header of crime films that includes Goodfellas, Casino, Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. It’s put together by Cineplex, which started the festival four years ago at one theatre in Toronto and has now expanded it to 19 theatres from British Columbia to Quebec.

  • Deconstructing Hate: A People Uncounted
    Tuesday January 29th 2013

    By TO411 Daily staff writer Daisy Maclean A visually striking and intensely thought-provoking film has been making the rounds of the festival circuit over the past year, and I suggest you add it to your list of top film’s from 2012 you still need to see. A People Uncounted explores[…]
