2012 JUNO Award Nominees for Music DVD of the Year:

Anthony Seck, Jannie McInnes, Chip Sutherland
Feist: Look At What the Light Did Now
Look at What the Light Did Now documents the journey of Feist's JUNO-winning and Grammy-nominated album "The Reminder". The film follows Feist and her creative collaborators through an impressionistic array of flickering scenery, echoing stadiums, puppet workshops, the red carpet, a crumbling French mansion, definitive concert performances and uncommonly candid interviews.

Elinor Svoboda, Salazar, Tegan Quin, Sara Quin, Piers Henwood, Nick Blasko
Tegan and Sara: Get Along
Get Along is a collection of three films that offers viewers a rare and intimate look into the lives of widely celebrated songwriters, performers, and musicians Tegan and Sara Quin.

Scot McFadyen, Sam Dunn, Pegi Cecconi
Rush: Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland
Captured in April at Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena, Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland marks the band's first live album recorded at a U.S. show, a deliberate nod of gratitude to the first city to support Rush on its radio airwaves. The wildly popular tour featured a set filled with classic hits, fan favourites, and a glimpse into Rush's forthcoming 20th studio album "Clockwork Angels".

Tim Martin, Frameblender, Peter Katz
Peter Katz: Live At the Music Gallery
Winner of the CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award, Grand prize winner of Toronto's IndieWeek, and nominated as Emerging Artist of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, recording artist Peter Katz captivates listeners with his unique brand of contemporary folk music.

Tony Girardin
David Francey: Burning Bright
Burning Bright is a film that chronicles David Francey's journey as a Scottish immigrant and lifelong manual labourer who rocketed to the top of the global folk/roots scene after a late and reluctant debut in his mid-forties.
