The National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and Telefilm Canada have commissioned
Ottawa/Toronto based Nordicity Group Ltd. (NGL) in association with Burbank
based WINESCO Corporation to research and explore the feasibility of developing
and introducing a national digital content distribution, projection and
exhibition network. Such a network would be designed to enhance the existing
exhibition capacity and the opportunity for audiences across Canada to have
access to Canadian and international independently produced films as well as
Christiane Ducasse and Kevin Wines from WINESCO Corporation and Peter Lyman,
Founding Partner of Nordicity Group, will be the primary consultants.
This assessment requires a thorough understanding of the emerging E-cinema
landscape and the development of comprehensive E-cinema network business models.
