Welcome to this privately run and non-commercial site which is dedicated to the films of Canadian-Armenian director (producer, screenwriter, etc.) Atom Egoyan.
I refer those who might not be familiar with his name to the ‘official’ biography at Egofilmarts.com
. Another useful one (although quite old) can be found at The Egoyan Nucleus
(among hundreds of others, certainly).
Of course there are quite a number of sources/sites on the internet which deal with Egoyan and his films already, some of them providing quite a lot of information.
I’ve made up a little list of those who seem most relevant to me on the internal page “Links
” [with German commentary]. As I found out, most of them are not up-to-the-minute (updated very rarely), and often do not take European conditions (background/circumstances) into account (a U.S. site rarely gives the particular information which might be crucial for a cinema-goer in Europe). In addition to that, the search becomes narrow concerning sites specialised on Egoyan. Is there any other active fan site
I regard this site as an addition to the existing ones with the main stress on current news [in German since 2002, in English since Jan. 2006]. Criticism, commentary, suggestions, corrections, inquiries or whatever is always welcome. So don’t hesitate to give some feedback.
