Take One: Film & Television in Canada

Take One: Film and Television in Canada was launched in 1992 and for the first few issues it was published irregularly. When it received support from the Ontario Arts Council and Canada Council, it went quarterly in 1996 and for a brief period in the early 2000s it was published five times a year. It folded in the spring of 2006 after 52 issues and three special issues.

The magazine was published by a non-profit organization, the Canadian Independent Film & Television Publishing Association, and Wyndham Wise served as the publisher and editor-in-chief. Over the span of its publishing history It built a reputation as Canada’s finest and most influential film magazine, offering criticism, articles, reviews and interviews and, most notably, significant contributions to the discourse on Canada cinema.
