Making Movie History: André Lamy

Making Movie History: André Lamy

| 6 min

André Lamy and his brother Pierre played an active role during the 60s heyday of Quebec's private film industry. Founding Onyx Films in 1962, they began by making TV programs and commercials, moving into feature production with films like Viol d'une jeune fille douce (1968), directed by Gilles Carle. In 1970, Lamy, whose experience had primarily been in the private sector, was surprised to be offered the position of Assistant Film Commissioner at the NFB. Named NFB Commissioner in 1975, he oversaw a period of expansion, boosting distribution efforts at home and abroad, and earning new international recognition for the agency. In 1980, he became head of the Canadian Film Development Commission, precursor of Telefilm Canada, another organization that underwent major growth under his watch. The age of downsizing was still to come! André Lamy died on May 2, 2010.
