Jun 302012


Inspired by the ‘Top 100 Canadian Films‘ list compiled by Possible Worlds and the upcoming Possible Worlds Canadian Film Festival, I have decided to shine the spotlight on Canadian films during the month of July; but I need your help to select the films and maybe even write a review. Details after the jump.

I have to admit that I’m not that clued up on Canadian cinema. I think when I was younger I probably didn’t (or wasn’t able to) distinguish it from American cinema, or in the case of French-language cinema, I probably assumed it was from France. It’s only been in the last couple of years which I’ve really started to notice how many great films come out of Canada. Three films that rank among my favourite watches in 2012 so far (Monsieur Lazhar,Café de Flore, C.R.A.Z.Y.) are all from Canada.

So in order to educate myself I’ve decided to focus on Canadian films during July -I’ll look at having 4-8 reviews and 1-2 features posted during the month. If there is a favourite Canadian film that you would like to review then please DM or email me. I’m always looking for new contributors.

What I’d really love would be for you all to share your favourite Canadian films with me. That way I can build a list of “must-sees” and decide which films I’ll review.

Please share your favourite Canadian films in the comments!
