The Toronto Star
ounded in 1997, Chronicle Pictures emerged with independently funded short films that quickly established a solid reputation for the company, selling to Canadian television networks and screening at Festivals across the globe.
Chronicle was commissioned by CBC Television to produce commercial parodies for its long-running consumer information series Street Cents.
Chronicle then produced December, 1917 for GLOBAL Television, an ambitious love story set against the backdrop of the Halifax Explosion. The show aired prime-time on both GLOBAL and the CBC to great critical reaction, was awarded a Bronze Plaque at the Columbus International Film and Video Festival, and received a Gemini Award nomination for Best Dramatic Short Program.
Chronicle’s first feature film, Touch & Go, which was pre-sold for Canadian television broadcast to The Movie Network, Movie Central and Showcase Television. The film premiered to sell-out audiences at the Atlantic Film Festival, and is now being distributed worldwide by Cinemavault.
Chronicle formed a partnership with U.K.-based producer Simon Baxter’s Mirror Productions, to facilitate international co-productions. Founding partner Evangelo Kioussis spends part of the year in England to liaise with Baxter in developing new projects.
Chronicle has provided script development services and co-production consultation to numerous UK companies and is currently developing series and features with Fluidity Films and Basch Productions. Chronicle is also producing the feature film debut of acclaimed Canadian writer/director John Hillis, the drama Bitter, Sweet and Beautiful.
The company is also developing the sci-fi/spy series Timeweave, in association with Microtainment Plus Productions. The series has attracted Doctor Who and MI5 alumni to its writing team, and is a South African co-production with MIA Features.
