Canada's Top 10 Film Festival

Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival celebrates Canadian Cinema and promotes excellence in both short and feature length films by presenting a combination of works by some of Canada’s most acclaimed filmmakers as well as up and coming award-winners to audiences across the country. The films are chosen by a panel of filmmakers and industry professionals, and are compiled by the Toronto International Film Festival.

Come celebrate the finest films our country has to offer and some the best filmmakers the world over. This year CTTFF also invites you to rediscover Winnipeg filmmaker John Paizs’ debut feature, Crime Wave. After nearly disappearing into obscurity, it has been released from TIFF’s vaults for its 30th anniversary in a newly remastered digital presentation.

Join Crime Watch January 20th for a special screening of this Canuxploitation classic, featuring a live remote Q & A with Paizs.
