The Filmmakers

About the Show

Back for season 2, THE FILMMAKERS is a 30-minute series that centres on a fun, candid studio conversation with some of the talents behind a showcase of recent Canadian-made films. Women in Film are on the marquee this season.  The seven half hour episodes will each feature intimate one-on-one interviews with Canadian female writer/directors followed by a roundtable discussion with a mix of personalities ranging from the Canadian actors who took part in the films, to key creatives or analysts.  We find out how each of these Canadian films were made, the inspiration behind them and why we need to watch. The episodes are followed on the schedule with the screening of each of the films this summer on CBC and the CBC TV app.
