Our Philosophy

Compass Productions creates original content for audiences worldwide. We are committed to pushing the boundaries of politics, culture and society with compelling programs with original, offbeat topics and creative vision. Our focus is on social issues and stories from the underground. Based in Montreal, we have a strong international orientation and have worked with partners across Canada and in the United States, France, Israel and Italy.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have a question, proposal or are looking to collaborate with a team of talented professionals.
