Canadian Front 2005

Mar 16–23, 2005


This second annual survey of new Canadian films made between 2004 and 2005 features eight strong, imaginative, and provocative features, and one short. Canadian cinema is distinctive in that it embraces two cultures, Anglophone and Francophone, unified by a system of federal and provincial support. This year’s program is distinguished by the number of emerging filmmakers selected for inclusion: Cameron Bailey, Noam Gonick, Caroline Martel, Rubba Nada, Daniel Roby, and Rob Stefaniuk. Returning to New York with recently completed features are Carole Laure and Bruce McDonald, and debuting at MoMA is a documentary by Benoît Pilon.

Organized by Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator, Department of Film and Media, and presented in cooperation with Telefilm Canada. Special thanks to Brigitte Hubmann, International Festival Specialist.

This exhibition is presented with the support of the Canadian Consulate General, New York.
