Canada’s Top Ten
Revisionist history at its most wonderfully ridiculous.
Featuring a blend of veteran filmmakers (many of whom deliver documentaries) and first time feature directors, TIFF's Canada's Top Ten line up for this year is unique and eclectic.
We talk to Louise Archambault, the Quebecois director of the Canadian Screen Award Best Picture nominee Gabrielle about avoiding misery and melodrama, her documentary-style approach to filmmaking, how coming of age stories can happen at any point in life, how her cast never felt pressured, and the relationship between her two award nominated leads.
Think 2013 was a weak year for Canadian cinema? Think again because most of the best work from this past year is merely being sat on for release this year. Our Film Editor looks at this year's TIFF Canada's Top Ten (kicking off this weekend) and the finest line-up of Canada's best to date.
It's sometimes too episodic for its own good, but the filthy minded and good natured sex farce My Awkward Sexual Adventure works towards saving Canadian cinema from becoming too serious.
