Despite winning innumerable Awards from all around the globe, the Canadian film industry has had to struggle hard for being overshadowed by the American film industry. A testimony to the fact is the nickname ‘Hollywood North’ earned by the Canadian film and television industry. The film fraternity of the country has two distinct groups: Anglophone-Canadian (English speaking Canadians) and Francophone-Canadian (French speaking Canadians) and both the communities have contributed to the production of over 1600 feature films since 1911. The cities of Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver have housed some of the major production centers making Canada a hub for contemporary cinema and the country has given the industry some of the notable film producers like Jim Carrey and Seth Rogen. James Cameron, another legendary Canadian film producer has produced some notable movies such as ‘The Terminator’, ‘Titanic’ and ‘Avatar’. ‘Saturday Night Live’, the popular comic show which revolutionized sketch comedy has been produced by Lorne Michaels another Canadian producer.
