With the support of the Government of Québec and in collaboration with the Institut de la
statistique du Québec (ISQ), the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) launched a new
international survey in 2007 to collect data on feature films. The analysis was based on a
preliminary study by Ivan Bernier, Associate Professor, Université Laval and Serge Bernier,
Associate Professor, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières.
Bollywood (India) was in first place by number of films produced, Nollywood (Nigeria) in second, and Hollywood (United States) in third.
