Finally, a who's who of Hollywood North. Put together by the publisher and editor-in-chief of Take One: Film & Television in Canada, this book is the most up-to-date reference guide to the Canadian film industry. A richly detailed accounting of both film and filmmakers, it provides over 700 reviews and biographical listings combined with a comprehensive chronology of major events in Canadian film and television history. Each film title listed includes credits, a mini review and significant awards. Biographical listings of directors, producers, actors, writers, animators, cinematographers, distributors, exhibitors and independent filmmakers include date and place of birth, a brief career overview, filmography and, if applicable, date of death. Inspired by the 1996 celebration of the one hundredth anniversary of film in Canada, this edition is a self-proclaimed work in progress. It's what Wyndham Wise considers only a start to documenting the wealth of achievements on both a national and international scale, featuring both the distinctly Canadian and what Canada has exported to Hollywood South.
