Canadian Francophonie Studio

The Canadian Francophonie Studio is at the heart of Canadian French-language documentary creation

Directed by executive producer Denis McCready since September 2018, the Studio de la francophonie canadienne has two production hubs: one in Toronto, where Denis McCready acts as a producer for the center, west and north of the country, and the other in Moncton, where producer Christine Aubé works with filmmakers from the east.

Working to realize the vision of Francophone creators from across the country (outside Quebec), the studio explores, develops, produces and co-produces short, medium and feature documentaries, as well as animated films, interactive works and photographic essays that radiate across Canada and beyond its borders.

The Studio de la francophonie canadienne embraces the challenges of audiovisual production in a minority setting by offering creators the opportunity to work in French to create their works in a context that promotes exploration and creativity, while combining artistic audacity and documentary rigor.
