Labrador Cinema presents a history in rare and significant images gathered from filmmakers and archives across Europe and North America. Each of the twelve chapters focuses on one decade of filmmaking in the region or by its people, and a comprehensive filmography of 225 items makes the book essential for collectors, researchers, and anyone interested in the development of this unique cinema.

With design by renowned Newfoundland and Labrador-based artist Graham Blair, cover design by St. John’s-based firm Perfect Day, and 88 images from significant films and television shows between 1901 and 2022, Labrador Cinema is an important addition to all collections.

Co-authors Mark David Turner and Morgen Mills also co-own Brack and Brine. Labrador Cinema crowns more than a decade of their collaboration on Labrador film history.


“Labrador Cinema is a moving tribute to the Big Land’s long filmmaking history […] Altogether a unique and leading work of multi-faceted appeal.”
