Framework For Measuring The Social Impact of Canadian Documentaries

In 2004, the Documentary Policy Advisory Group commissioned ERIN Research to develop a measurement framework that would estimate the social and cultural impact of Canadian documentaries. The framework was grounded in an analysis of seven representative Canadian documentaries and a review of the literature.

The selected films chosen as case studies are: The Corporation, Silence of the Strings, FIX: Story of an Addicted City, Kanehsatake, Squat!, L’Erreur boréale and Qulliq.

Thought-provoking doc... [The filmmakers] wrap their end-is-nigh warning in an entertaining package, and the coolheaded delivery increases its impact.
