This eclectic, provocative, and comprehensive guide surveys Canadian creators and their creations in every medium -- festivals, theater, music, film, dance, literature, the visual arts, movies, and television. Respected cultural critic Tom Henighan introduces each subject with a thought-provoking essay on the 'state of the art' at the turn of the millennium, adding lists of his own best choices, such as "16 Indispensable Canadian Films", and "A Baker's Dozen of Significant Canadian Paintings". Major artistic companies and institutions in each province are listed with pertinent contact details and a brief, informative description of its latest accomplishments. Winners of major Canadian cultural prizes -- the Junos, the Genies, the Geminis, the Jessies, the Governor General's and more -- are listed, year by year, from their inception. Useful in many ways -- as an indispensable reference, a basic primer or an informed assessment of Canada's artistic scene, or as a cultural travel handbook -- this isa book that should be on the bookshelf of aficionados of the arts.
