Administrative history

The Canadian Film Development Corporation (Telefilm Canada) was created by Act of Parliament in 1967 to foster and promote the development of a feature film industry in Canada. The plan called for direct investment in low-budget Canadian 'cultural films', but by 1973 the demands for a more commercial fare led the CFDC to promote international co-production, sometimes using foreign stars in the feature films. Many of the films produced under this arrangement were never released.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of scripts for Canadian Film Development Corporation film productions, including many that never entered the production phase, and others that were never released. Among the titles in the collection are 'Lies my father told me,' (written by Ted Allan, directed by Jan Kadar, 1973), 'La maudite Galette,' (written by Jacques Benoit, directed by Denys Arcand, 1971-1972), 'Rip-off,' (written by William Fruet, directed by Don Shebib, 1970-1971), 'The rowdyman,' (written by Gordon Pinsent, directed by Peter Carter, 1971-1972), 'Return to Rainbow Country,' (written by William Davidson, n.d.), 'Partners,' (written by Norman Snider and Don Owen, 1975), and other titles.
