Kannon Films aims to produce high-quality television and film content in both French and English. Our goals are to inspire, educate and entertain different audiences through documentary and fiction projects about topics that matter to us. Our audiovisual company goes to great lengths to manage every project from concept to delivery. We regularly develop and script new media projects whether independently or in collaboration with private production companies and Canadian broadcasters. We build relationships with community organizations, seek sponsorship and regularly apply for grants and funding. During the pre-production and production phases of a project, we hire audiovisual specialists, plan our schedule and determine where the filming will take place. Finally, we offer post-production services in order to develop an exceptional product that will go beyond our clients' expectations.
