POV #119 is currently in layout and will be en route to readers at the kickoff of fall festival season! This issue features conversations with filmmakers behind some of the top docs debuting on the circuit this year, including Chelsea McMullan and Sean O’Neill who join us to discuss their new film (and series!) Swan Song, which goes behind the scenes of the National Ballet of Canada as legendary ballerina Karen Kain mounts her farewell production. Another beloved Canadian icon graces the pages of POV with a first look at Mr. Dressup: The Magic of Make-Believe featuring director Rob McCallum and producers Mark Bishop and Aeschylus Poulos. Other highlights in the issue include a look at the restoration of the Academy Award winning documentary Artie Shaw: Time Is All You’ve Got, directed by Brigitte Berman. The doc is one of only three Canadian films to win the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature and has long been unavailable to audiences. We also look at the fight for regional representation in Quebec, the rise of the doc scenes in Edmonton and Halifax, and ask what’s going on at Hot Docs as the festival turns 30.
This year, POV readers get a bonus issue as we will be publishing a special issue in December to mark the 40th anniversary of the Documentary Organization of Canada. This special issue will take the pulse of our founding body and its legacy for advocacy in Canada, and the role it’s shaped in developing our national art form. DOC members receive POV as a benefit, so consider joining today if you work in the field.
