We create conversations around documentary works, illuminate the stories behind their production, and elevate the talents behind the cameras. We provide informed and engaged commentary that connects documentaries with the issues of today.
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.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council for their ongoing support. Our website design was made possible through a grant from the Department of Canadian Heritage’s Business Innovation Grant through the Canadian Periodical Fund.
POV is available in print twice annually with a third/special issue in 2023.
POV Magazine‘s office is based in Toronto (Tkaronto), which is home to and the meeting place of many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island, including the Huron-Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. We are grateful to live, work, and gather on this land. We encourage readers to consider the many histories and legacies embedded within this land.
