Content with purpose.
Cedar Island Films, based in Vancouver, produces documentaries and dramas as features and series with a strong focus on collaborative partnerships, locally and internationally.
Cedar Island’s latest feature documentary, THE MAGNITUDE OF ALL THINGS (NFB/Telus/Telefilm) by Jennifer Abbott (The Corporation) opened at VIFF 2020, won Best Canadian Feature Award at Planet in Focus and Audience Choice Award at DocLands in California. It also screened at RIDM (Montreal), IDFA (Amsterdam), Cinequest (San Jose) among many other festivals. They’ve produced THE SEARCH, a feature documentary for the CBC with Shaman Films plus three high-end television service productions. Their Canadian/German feature doc co-production THE WHALE AND THE RAVEN (ZDF/ARTE/NFB) won the WIFTV Artistic Merit Award at VIFF 2019 and is available on Amazon Prime Video.
The two principles, Henrik Meyer and Andrew Williamson, have the privilege of successfully producing film, television and digital media content for many years. With this wealth of experience, they are now focused on building on their work with filmmakers who may not have the same access to funding and audiences. Cedar Island is in development on a diverse slate of projects from exciting new voices, together with robust international partners.
Cedar Island is passionate about creating content with purpose -- particularly about critical and timely subjects like the environment, decolonization, 2SLGBTQ+, diversity, equality and inclusion.
