TeleFilm Canada Is A Massive Failure

Recommended Posts

Clearly TeleFilm is a massive failure and needs to be immediately shut-down. This is a 130 million dollar a year boon-dogle that could not produce a watchable or marketable movie if they tried. 2%? Pathetic.

 

"Hollywood tentpoles grabbed 93% of screen time in Canadian theaters last year, against a 2% share for Canadian movies, including Quebec fare, according to Zoom Services."

Well Richard wasn't commenting on whether the films were good or not.

 

It could be that Max is right and they are putting out many great and worthy movies that I'm not getting to see.

 

I do suspect that there are a lot of great movies being made all the time.

The latest Orson Welles or Cassavetes is making movies right now, no doubt helped by the digital revolution that is allowing them to make the movie easily on a cheap camcorder or DSLR. It's a golden future as Marting Scorsese suggests:

Meanwhile Batman: The Dark Knight Rises pulls in $448,139,099 from domestic box office alone!

 

It's win-win for everyone it would appear! ;)
