Intuitive Pictures is a Montreal-based company dedicated to producing quality film, television and transmedia productions. We work with some of the finest creators: writers, directors, “ideas people” in developing projects that are both innovative and have a wide audience appeal. We welcome co-production and collaborate with partners worldwide. Our new platform intuitivepictures.ca is a space for what we believe is important: audacious ideas, new forms of storytelling and open dialogue about what’s good and not-so-good about our world.
