In addition to the big-name Hollywood nominees, the TFCA's yearly picks also include a summing up of Canadian Content highlighted by the $100,000 Rogers Best Canadian Film award, which will be announced at the Gala celebration on January 6, 2015.

I suppose, however, that the integrity of the top 10 list would be compromised if status was an automatic ticket to inclusion (which in some years it has seemed like).
Here are my picks for the top 10 film directors from Toronto.
