Site Media Inc. is a new and creative presence in Canada’s short and documentary film community. Founded by Katherine Knight in 2006, Site Media made an immediate impact with its first film “Annie Pootoogook”. In 2009 Site Media will release the 1-hour documentary, “Pretend Not To See Me, the art of Colette Urban”.
Artist Katherine Knight is recognized for her evocative landscape based photographic works. She has exhibited extensively throughout Canada and in 2000 was awarded the prestigious Duke and Duchess of York prize in Photography in recognition of excellence in her work. 'Annie Pootoogook' is her second project for broadcast. Her short film, 'Marguerite' was shown on the Masterworks program on TV Ontario in 2005.
David Craig joined Site Media as partner in 2008. He entered the Canadian production industry working on the feature film “Life Classes”. He gained broad knowledge of the creative and business aspects of media arts as head of the film office at the Ontario Arts Council. This was followed by a stint as an analyst in the Toronto office of Telefilm Canada. He is producing Site Media’s third production, a hour long television documentary about the 50th anniversary of the renowned Kinngait Studio in Cape Dorset, Nunavut commissioned by Bravo Canada.
In its short life Site Media has demonstrated a remarkable feel for noteworthy people and places. It explores lives and landscapes with a patient eye, and reveals to viewers the creative, cultural geographies we inhabit.
