Canada's Top Ten

The Toronto International Film Festival is probably one of the biggest film festivals in North America, which draws celebrities and filmmakers from around the world and is cushioned by media frenzy, making it harder for local audiences to witness some of the marvels of filmmaking.

But around this time of year, every year, one can expect to see a re-run of Canadian film screenings from September's festival, making the Canada's Top Ten event at Jackman Hall a chance to catch up with some of the leading Canadian filmmaker's.

Not only is this a chance to see what the Toronto International Film Festival calls the "Top Ten" in Canadian cinema, also included in this programme is a chance to hear from the filmmakers behind the films. This year panel discussions include the likes of Atom Egoyan (Where the Truth Lies), Deepa Mehta (Water), and Michael Mabott (The Life and Hard Times of Guy Terrifico) to name a few, but be sure to check out the website at www.topten.ca for a list of screenings and to purchase your tickets in advance as they do go fast.

Single tickets for films are $7.50 and panel discussions are $15 each. But they do have some pretty good "combo" deals. Also available are student and senior discounts.
