The Great Canadian Guide to the Movies (and TV)
------  Links  ------


Here are some sites relating to Movies and TV (mainly Canadian, some more general):

TV, eh?:  A handy little guide with links to articles and news releases relating to Canadian TV shows, including those ever elusive interviews with the stars, etc.

URBMN: Another site providing recaps (and op-ed) on what's happening in Canadian TV.

Toro Magazine: A Canadian magazine basically -- I think -- aming for the FHM and Maxim type crowd. That is general interest and pop culture with a raciness involving sexy photo shoots involving lingerie and bikinis as opposed to Playboy-like nudity. Call it un-PC if ya like, but maybe it's good that there's a Canadian mag promoting Canadian actresses and models as sex objects and English-Canadian pop culture as worthy of a slick glossy mag!

Urban Male Magazine: Similar to Toro (above) -- general interest/pop culture with a PG sexiness. And, again, same reason I'm including it.

Reel Canada:  The official site for a project bringing Canadian movies into schools -- check it out. 

Canadian Actor On-Line:  (I've corrected the bad link I had to this one) Info about and for Canadian actors, including links to other review websites, plus fan pages dedicated to Canadian actors. Intended primarily as a resource for people in the biz, it still has enough interesting links and stuff for fans. Co-created by actress Lynda Mason Green. 

CBC Television Series 1952-1982:  An unofficial, but extremely extensive site detailing zillions of CBC TV series, with cast lists, etc.

Canuxploitation!: Your Complete Guide to Canadian B-Film - Chok full of reviews and articles on the "other" Canadian cinema, the pulpy, lurid films that don't get the awards, but do make it to the video shelves!

Les doubleurs de la Belle Province!/Dubbers from Quebec!: a nifty idea for a website, ideal for Canada (being an officially bilingual country), it's a fan site devoted to the art of dubbing, and some of the actors who work behind the scenes to let movies cross the language barrier. It's in both English and en Francaise. (I recently corrected the out-of-date link)

Memorable TV: A resource for info about old TV shows with descriptions, cast lists, etc. Not Canadian focused, per se, but still looks to be a good resource. 

TV Tome: Another great resource -- not Canadian-centric, but with plenty of Canadian entries -- for TV series, including episode guidess and the like.

Northern Stars:  A big data base with info on Canadian-born celebrities.

Who's Who in Film & TV in Vancouver B.C.:  A database with links and pix of various people, both actors and behind-the-scenes, currently working in and around Vancouver. A resource for film fans and maybe industry pros thinking of shooting in B.C. Also links to the B.C. Women in Film pages. 

The Internet Movie Database:  (of course!)

Here are some company sites:

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation:  Say what you want about the virtues of private enterprise, say what you want about the problems at the CBC, but the fact is, there wouldn't be a Canadian TV and film culture -- even today -- if not for the good ol' Mother Corp.

imX:  Another maritime-based production house, responsible for "Margaret's Museum" among others.

Sullivan Entertainment:  The people behind Anne of Green Gables, Road to Avonlea, and a host of other productions.

Telefilm CanadaThe major film funding agency in Canada.
