Amidst movie awards season is Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival

Starting January 8 Toronto’s TIFF Bell Lightbox is where the 15th annual Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival will celebrate another banner year of contemporary Canadian cinema and Canadian achievements in film.

Established in 2001, the 10-day event presents public screenings of the top 10 features, shorts and student shorts for 2015 as selected by two national panels of filmmakers and industry professionals (one for features, another for shorts). Festival screenings include introductions and Q&A sessions with filmmakers, as well as special events, industry panels and free engagements.

“From exceptional debut features to veteran filmmakers at the top of their craft, Canadian talent from coast to coast cracked this year’s list,” said Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director, Toronto International Film Festival. “What better way to escape winter’s icy grip than with a toasty lineup of special guests and homegrown films presented in eight cities across the country.”

“One of our most geographically representative programs to date, the strength of this year’s lineup is a testament to the diversity and curiosity of our nation’s filmmakers — from Newfoundland to British Columbia,” said Steve Gravestock, Senior Programmer, TIFF. “The collaborations from across the country demonstrate the versatility of our filmmaking community, delivering deeply engaging cinema in their exploration of Canadian values.”

Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival runs until January 17. Visit TIFF for a complete list of selected films and related events. See you at the movies.
