Canada's Top Ten 2010
February 16, 2011 until March 11, 2011

As Canada’s oldest film organization, the Canadian Film Institute has a longstanding and ongoing commitment to presenting the best of Canadian cinema. Once again, we are pleased to be the Ottawa presenting partner of the Toronto International Film Festival Group’s touring package of Canada’s Top Ten, the ten best films from this country in 2010. The selection is made by a panel made up of Canadian filmmakers, producers, critics, and programmers. 

Due to the fact that they are already in wide release, two prominent films of the Top Ten are not included here: Denis Villeneuve’s INCENDIES and Richard Lewis’s BARNEY’S VERSION. In their place, however, we are able to present Canada’s Top Ten short films, featuring the best work in the short film format over the last year. One film, LIPSETT DIARIES, has a local connection: its script is written by none other than the CFI’s Chris Robinson, Artistic Director of the Ottawa International Animation Festival. 

Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to catch up on all the best films made in Canada 2010 between February 16 and March 11.
