Celebrating the Spirit and Success of Canadian Cinematography.

Though they are rarely seen on the opposite side of the lens, these unsung heroes of the moving image will be brought right into focus in Northern Lights, a documentary that will celebrate and give an appreciation of the Canadian Cinematographer’s role in filmmaking.

Northern Lights will feature interviews with dozens of the medium's greatest Cinematographers in Canada (Paul Sarossy, Derek Vanlint, Mark Irwin), to name a few. In addition, acclaimed Canadian Directors (Atom Egoyan, Bruce McDonald, Sarah Polley), provide further insight into the Director & Cinematographer collaboration. They relate stories of the films, television series or commercials they've worked on, the problems they've solved, the innovations they've made standard, one will get a full measure of the love and obsession that goes into the creation of motion pictures.

Even if some people have only a passing interest in film, this will change the way they look at movies and the talented filmmakers behind the scenes that make the magic real for us.

Northern Lights would not have been possible without the generous support of: Deluxe, Panavision, Production Services, Trew Audio and I.A.T.S.E. 667.
