THE SEVENTH ART
(Series, 2012-2014)

Moondi and Robertson currently produce The Seventh Art: an on-going video magazine about cinema that has featured Peter Bogdanovich, Guy Maddin, Paul Schrader, Whit Stillman, Joe Swanberg, and numerous other prominent International filmmakers.

In 2012, The Seventh Art collaborated with the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television on its coverage of the 32nd annual Genie Awards to produce their live-streamed backstage show, and also produced over twelve hours of original content during the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.

In 2013, The Seventh Art once again collaborated with the Academy to produce its live-streamed backstage coverage of the inaugural Canadian Screen Awards. The two-and-a-half hour live show was the most comprehensive coverage of the year’s awards featuring interviews with nominees and winners in a talk show setting, featuring comedians Dan Beirne and Etan Muskat.

December 2012 saw the launch of The Seventh Art Live Directors Series: a recurring live event bringing important film directors to Toronto to screen and discuss their works. The first of the series featured Whit Stillman presenting his films Metropolitan and The Last Days of Disco to packed houses at Toronto’s prestigious Royal Cinema. The series continued in spring 2013 with legendary filmmaker Paul Schrader.
