Reelside Explores Canadian Filmmakers And Mentors


The Movie Network goes behind the scenes of the creative process with Reelside, a new six-part, half-hour original documentary series that celebrates the stories of prominent Canadians both in front of and behind the camera – each episode follows filmmakers on a unique journey, such as Sarah Gadon who partners with Caitlin Cronenberg on a photography project, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen who share experiences about being Canadian boys in Hollywood, and Matthew Hannam who sets off with mentors Don McKellar and Bruce McDonald on a classically Canadian road trip.

Following the premiere episode of Reelside, featuring Gadon and Cronenberg, is a special presentation of the Canadian feature film Enemy, starring Gadon and Jake Gyllenhaal.

“From exploring road movies in an RV in Northern Ontario to the streets of Toronto with horror icon George A. Romero, Reelside captures honest, behind-the-scenes moments with some of this country’s biggest names in entertainment,” said Tracey Pearce, Senior Vice-President of Specialty and Pay at Bell Media, in a press release. “Visually and creatively, this is Canadiana at its finest and a must-see for fans of great storytelling.”

Reelside is a production from Fifth Ground Entertainment in association with The Movie Network and Movie Central. It debuts on Thursday, June 4th at 9pm on The Movie Network,
