Canada's Top Ten
|Canada's Top Ten is a unique annual event, established in 2001 by the Toronto International Film Festival Group to recognize and honour excellence in Canadian cinema.
|The List celebrates and promotes contemporary Canadian cinema and is intended to raise public awareness of Canadian achievements. An independent 10-member national Panel comprised of filmmakers, programmers, journalists, and industry professionals vote on the best Canadian films of the year, which can include features, shorts, documentaries, animation, and experimental films.
Each film selected as part of Canada's Top Ten must have either premiered at a Canadian film festival (not necessarily the Toronto International Film Festivalģ) or had a commercial theatrical release in Canada within the calendar year. The List is published alphabetically and without any preferential order.¬†
