Abstract and Keywords

This chapter explores the trajectories of Canadian filmmakers through the discourses, events, and infrastructures of cinema outside of their national borders. As Canadian cinema travels the world, it is promoted and interpreted in a variety of ways: as a product seeking foreign markets, as an ambassadorial cultural form representing Canada, and as a distinctive authorial voice often nurtured by the international circuit of film festivals and the networks these have helped create. The chapter focuses on Canadian cinema’s particular susceptibility to the international scene and the latter’s key role both in the fostering of Canadian auteurs and in the eclipsing, at times, of their very Canadianness.

Keywords: international, diplomacy, auteur, festival, Canadian
