The Canadian Society of Cinematographers (CSC) is a trade society whose members are Cinematographers working in Canada.[1] Members can put the letters C.S.C. after their names. The society hosts awards for Canadian cinematographers annually in Toronto.[2][3]


The society was founded in 1957, in an attempt to create a trade society similar to the American Society of Cinematographers in Canada. The federal government did not recognize the society for three years until in 1960 the Secretary of State officially recognized the society.[3]


The Society published a magazine called Cinema Canada from 1961[4] which continued to be published under a number of other names until 1989.[5]
