I love Canadian television. Over the last fifty years there have been so many great series on TV, and they’ve been shared around the world, and now you can get your fix for classic episodes from some of the best shows of yesteryear on YouTube, for free, thanks to Encore+.
Summer is around the corner, I just got back from a Canada 150 road trip with Ford, and there are only 85 days until the Toronto International Film Festival. There is a lot going on, but the festival is front of mind since I’m prepping The GATE’s Interview Lounge at TIFF, and my accreditation application came in Monday too.
Canada has several festivals focusing on the big screen, but an absence of festivals celebrating television programming. That is about to change with the launch of the Canadian International Television Festival (CITF), the first of its kind in Canada.
