The CFTPA and Canadian Heritage have released their annual report [PDF] on the state of the industry. The report contains detailed analysis of film and tv production in Canada without (refreshingly) a single complaint about copyright. Interestingly, rather than discussing camcording, the report identifies a different problem with the Canadian movie theatre business:
"Canadian films continue to face formidable competition from Hollywood productions. There is limited shelf space for films on theatrical screens; and that available space, as well as trailers, is typically allocated to Hollywood films. In fact, Hollywood films have access to 10 to 20 times as many screens as most Canadian films."
Sounds like the Canadian industry should ask the Hollywood studios if they could turn their threat to delay the Canadian release of their movies into a promise.
