A clever, twisty, and consistently exciting bit of high concept sci-fi, the Canadian thriller Freaks takes great pleasure in never giving audiences what they expect, but instead giving them what they never knew they needed.
TIFF’s annual celebration of the best in Canadian cinema feels more essential than ever before. Canada’s Top Ten (running from Friday, January 12 to Sunday, January 21) comes at a unique and potentially dire moment for the country’s cinematic history.
After a lackluster year for Canadian features in 2016, we’re proud to look at the ten worthy features selected for this year’s TIFF sponsored Canada’s Top Ten, running from January 13th to the 26th at TIFF Bell Lightbox, and talk about why they get Canadian cinema off to a great start in 2017.
With TIFF’s annual showcase of our nation’s greatest talent kicking off this week, we take a look at this year’s short film selections for Canada’s Top Ten.
