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—full-colour print magazine published twice annually with an established and engaged online presence.

POV Magazine covers the art and business of documentary in print and online, which includes film, photography, and new media. We provide informed and engaged commentary that connects documentaries with the issues of today. This commentary takes the form of essays, profiles of new films, filmmaker interviews, reviews and columns on current affairs and policy. We value truth and independence in news media, and the long history of documentary in Canada for providing a voice to filmmakers from coast to coast and for members of underrepresented communities.

-POV welcomes story ideas from writers and filmmakers of all backgrounds. We encourage an inclusive and progressive environment, and are always eager to spotlight new voices and perspectives.

-Please be transparent if you are working with a publicist or submitting a story idea on behalf of a third party. PR representatives are encouraged to pitch the editors first, rather than ask freelancers to submit on behalf of the firm. This helps us plan our stories fairly and accordingly within our objectives and timelines.
