Henrik Meyer’s last production in Germany before migrating to Canada was Margarethe von Trotta’s award-winning Venice-contender ROSENSTRASSE, which received a gala presentation at TIFF and became one of the most successful foreign-language film at the US box-office in 2004. His first film as a Canadian producer a year later was Douglas Coupland’s  EVERYTHING’S GONE GREEN, winning Leo Awards for Best Picture and Best Screenplay in British Columbia. Since then, Henrik has produced television programs and feature films in Canada, most of them with European partners, including 2013 Berlinale-contender GOLD and multi-award-winning SHANA–THE WOLF’S MUSIC. Henrik recently joined Andrew Williamson to form Cedar Island Films. Their first feature documentary co-pros include THE WHALE AND THE RAVEN (NFB Canada and ARTE Germany), THE SEARCH (Shaman Films for CBC’s Doc Channel, and THE MAGNITUDE OF ALL THINGS by Jennifer Abbott (NFB Canada and TELUS Fund).
