About Us

Point of View Magazine (POV) is Canada’s premiere magazine about documentary culture.

POV was founded by the lobby and advocacy organization, Documentary Organization of Canada (DOC), in 1990. In 2010, POV became separately incorporated. POV now exists as its own entity—a quarterly full-colour print magazine with an established and engaged online presence.

We’ve delivered over 100 issues of smart, thoughtful and critically engaged coverage of the documentary films and photographs and the artists that make them to an expanding audience.As the world of documentary media evolves, so does POV. We’re endlessly curious about the ways documentaries provide perspective and context in an increasingly frantic world.
