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.

Quotes

THE CORPORATION is an important, powerful film. It's a thoughtful, analytical critique that is both disheartening in its sweep and encouraging in its final prognosis about the potential for change
