Larry Weinstein is one of Canada's most prolific and accomplished documentary filmmakers, and has been honoured with retrospectives around the world and broadcasts in more than 40 countries. The majority of his 30 award-winning films centre on music and the creative process while his other subjects range from the horrors of war to the pleasures of football. His films consistently push the boundaries of conventional documentary storytelling by employing tools from fiction films, dramatic reconstructions, historical cinematic stylings, and impressionistic visuals. In 2007, Larry received the Cannes MipDoc International Trailblazer Award with the citation, "Weinstein is a deserving awardee for his creativity, originality, and risk-taking, and for pushing the genre of documentary forward."
