Cinemablographer is a Canadian film blog written by Pat Mullen. Pat began Cinemablographer in 2010 as a writing exercise before going off to pursue a Master's in Film Studies at Carleton University in Ottawa, where his studies focused on adaptation and Canadian cinema. The project continued, however, when Pat's research yielded an ongoing lack of coverage for Canadian cinema and the observation that he spent a lot more time writing film reviews than he did writing term papers. Pat now makes an effort to review as many Canadian films as possible alongside Hollywood movies, documentaries, short films, and world cinema goodies. Pat also dabbles in the awards races and enjoys covering film festivals such as TIFF, Hot Docs, and the Ottawa International Animation Festival, among others. Pat is also a programmer at Ottawa's Cellar Door Film Festival, which will hold its first edition in Fall 2014.
