Posted by Nordicity in Toronto on Feb 02, 2012

TORONTO - February 2012 - Nordicity has been engaged by the Documentary Organization of Canada/l'Association des documentaristes du Canada (DOC) to gather information for the fifth edition of its flagship publication, Getting Real 5: An Economic Profile of the Canadian Documentary Production Industry ("Getting Real").

Nordicity and DOC collaborated in 2003 to develop the first edition of Getting Real. Since 2003, Nordicity has had the opportunity to work with DOC to prepare four subsequent editions of Getting Real.

Nordicity is delighted to be involved in the fifth edition of GETTING REAL.

Getting Real will draw upon data from the Canadian Audiovisual Certification Office (CAVCO), Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), Department of Canadian Heritage, National Film Board of Canada, Canada Media Fund and Telefilm Canada to create a comprehensive profile of documentary production activity in Canada between the 2001/02 and 2010/11 fiscal years. It will include statistics on television and feature film production, treaty coproductions, production financing and audience demand for Canadian documentaries in both the English-language and French-language markets.
