Canada's Top Ten
Wednesday, 23 February 2011
Just a quick announcement about Canada's Top Ten programme. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, the March 11th screening date of Shorts Programme B and THE HIGH COST OF LIVING has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

But now the good news: there's still one day left to catch the best that Canada had to offer in 2010! This Saturday, February 26th, come and see Les amours imaginaires (Heartbeats) at 19:00 / 7pm, and Shorts Programme A at 21:00 / 9pm. Both will be at the Library and Archives Canada, 395 Wellington St., Ottawa.

Stay tuned for more news on our upcoming events and developments.

Happy New Year!
Thursday, 13 January 2011
Welcome to 2011!

Here at the CFI, we're already in the thick of things, planning and programming for many upcoming events.

On January 29th, the Best of the Ottawa International Animation Festival swings by Ottawa during its Canadian tour. A program of exception award-winning shorts from around the world, the 2010 Best of Ottawa is the best way to catch what you might have missed during the Festival in October. Click here for more information and the full program listing.

To get over the February blues, Canada's Top Ten -- selected by the Toronto International Film Festival -- will highlight the strong Canadian cinematic contributions from the past year.

March will bring the 15th Latin American Film Festival, and hot on its coattails is DiverCiné, "A World View of la francophonie".

Keep your eyes peeled, because more details and events will be posted here soon!

End of the Year 2010
Friday, 17 December 2010

On behalf of Executive Director Tom McSorley and myself, thank you to everyone who attended the 25th European Union Film Festival. It was great to see so many excited cinephiles, and, in my opinion, the passionate conversation that takes place after each film is the true indication of this event’s success.

Attendance was wonderful as usual, and the EU Member States’ communities came out in full force alongside new and regular CFI members. We welcome all the new members who joined us during the EUFF and, as always, a big thank you to the Ambassador members who attended so many of the EUFF films and continue to support the CFI.

We received many compliments on the new ticketing and lineup systems, and hope to continue to increase the quality and professionalism of our Box Office over the next year. A number of embassies arranged some truly memorable receptions; wine, cheese, chocolates, hors d'oeuvres and more! Overall, a big thank you to all 26 of the Member States for their efforts and contributions in preparation of and throughout the EUFF.

Lastly, we couldn’t have accomplished anything without the support of our sponsors: the Embassies of Germany, France and Poland, and St. Laurent Volvo; plus, our media sponsors: Embassy Magazine, Ottawa Xpress, and CHIN Radio 97.9FM.

Before we sign off for 2010, we want to remind you to check FacebookTwitteryour email inbox, and this website for updates on future programming; our website will be beefed up with new features, options, and content in the new year. Lastly, 2011 brings the ever-popular series of Canada’s Top Ten, and the Latin American Film Festival will return for its 15th year in March. See you there!

Have a safe and enjoyable holiday season, and a Happy New Year!
