Top Canada Films 2013

The top 10 films in Canada from 2013

TIFF has released its annual Top Ten lists of Canadian movies for 2013, highlighting the best this country has to offer in both the feature and short categories. Now in its 12th year, this year's top picks might lack some of the star power of recent lists - the presence of Denis Villeneuve notwithstanding - but there's no shortage of excellent work, which testifies to the strong state of Canadian filmmaking, and particularly the cinema of Quebec.

Although a number of these films played at TIFF this year, the Top Ten list is also a festival unto itself, which offers an opportunity to catch some of films one might have missed in September or that will ultimately prove difficult to find in theatrical release. Running for 10 days from January 3rd to 12th, Canada's Top Ten will feature screenings of the listed films as well as Q&A sessions with the filmmakers. Jake Gyllenhaal will be on hand to discuss his recent work with Villeneuve, and Jon Greyson will close out the festival in conversation with TIFF Artistic Director Cameron Bailey.
