Camera is a 2000 Canadian short film written and directed by David Cronenberg. The six minute short was one of several made in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Toronto International Film Festival. These films, all by Canadian directors, were commissioned as preludes for the festival in 2000.


A seasoned actor (Leslie Carlson, in his fourth collaboration with Cronenberg) discusses the current state of film while a group of young children sneak in with production equipment to film him. The children are enamored with the camera, which the actor views as an infectious, malevolent presence.
