Canadian Francophonie Studio

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

Since 2018, the Canadian Francophonie Studio has been headed by Executive Producer Denis McCready, based in Toronto. Under his leadership, the Studio has continued to fulfil its mandate at the heart of French-language documentary creation, by working to realize the visions of creators from across the country (outside Quebec). Together with producer Christine Aubé, who is based in the Studio’s Moncton centre and oversees Acadian production, the Studio explores, develops, produces, and co-produces short, medium, and feature-length documentaries as well as animation films, interactive works, and photo essays seen and heard across Canada and beyond.

The Canadian Francophonie Studio embraces the challenges of documentary production in minority-language environments by giving creators the opportunity to develop their projects in French, working in an environment that emphasizes exploration and creativity, along with documentary rigour and artistic risk-taking.
