About

The Seventh Art is a Toronto-based publication featuring in-depth conversations with filmmakers. The website includes interviews with Pedro Costa, Claire Denis, the Safdie brothers, Angela Schanelec, David Gordon Green, Barbara Hammer, Terence Davies, Albert Serra, Frederick Wiseman, Athina Rachel Tsangari, Peter Bodanovich, and many more.

The Seventh Art was founded and produced by Christopher Heron, Pavan Moondi, and Brian Robertson in 2012 as an independently produced “video magazine,” released online once a month and featuring long-form interviews, video essays, and industry profiles. The video magazine transitioned to feature live events, including screenings & parties with visiting filmmakers in its Live Directors Series (Whit Stillman, Paul Schrader, Andrew Bujalski, Don McKellar); over 20 hours of live streamed content during the Toronto International Film Festival; an alternative backstage show at the Canadian Screen Awards; a monthly, collaborative screening series with our friends at MDFF in 2015; and a wider range of text-based interviews.
