Point of View’s 25th Anniversary

POV’s 25th anniversary issue, #89, will be launched at a special celebratory party on February 28 at Toronto’s Tranzac Club, 292 Brunswick Avenue, deep in the heart of the doc community in the Annex.

“We’re all really excited about the new POV,” says Marc Glassman, who has edited the magazine since issue 46. “Barri Cohen, who has meant so much to the magazine over the years as an editor, publisher, contributor and Chair of the Board, has completed a masterful interview with the doc team of Maya Gallus and Justine Pimlott. They’re celebrating their 10th anniversary as heads of Red Queen Productions and Barri has captured their passion, politics and personalities in her piece.”

Contributing editor James Buffin—a “force of nature” according to Glassman—has written two linked pieces for the new POV. His TIFF Diary is a candid, day by day, look back at the docs and doc-makers Buffin encountered during this year’s festival. His Revolution? examines the new film by Sharkwater auteur Rob Stewart and asks ‘how can he be so calm if we’re actually heading towards disaster?’

That’s not all! Award-winning documentarist Moze Mossanen investigates “The State of TV docs.” Former Guy Maddin producer Greg Klymkiw profiles doc producer Ed Barreveld. Acclaimed doc-maker Pepita Ferrari contributes an insightful article on Montreal documentary filmmaker Katarina Soukup and her new film Lost Rivers. POV regular Adam Nayman looks at doc veteran Paul Saltzman’s career and new film The Last White Knight.

All of this great content and much more will be packaged in a new, redesigned format to serve you better. (New duds for the occasion seemed appropriate!)
