Canada's Top Ten 2007 Announced

Exciting news for Canadian film, Canada's Top Ten for 2007 has been announced. I'm thrilled to see My Winnipeg on the list, a masterpiece by the one, the only Guy Maddin. Overall it is a well rounded selection of films, and like last year the majority of the films have not be out in regular theatre release. In Toronto, only 2 have shown outside festival settings: Eastern Promises and The Tracey Fragments. We do have an opportunity to see the films as they shown at Cinematheque January 25 - February 5, 2008 (see schedule here, buy tickets here).
