Contemporary Canadian Cinema

This course introduces students to contemporary Canadian cinema by placing it in the historical context of its development since 1960. The course tracks the issues that have confronted various attempts to create and define a national cinema. These include cultural policies and institutions; the tension between a pan-Canadian concept of national cinema, regionalism, Qu├ębec national cinema and the cinemas of the First Nations; and the problem of a domestic/foreign film market inundated by Hollywood cinema.
