The top 10 Canadian movies of 2016

Plenty of big-ticket blockbusters came out in 2016, but here in Toronto, we're getting ready to celebrate the best Canadian films, which you might not have seen yet.

Thankfully, TIFF will host the 16th annual Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival from January 13 to 26. Head to the TIFF Bell Lightbox during that two week period to see the best features, shorts and student shorts made in Canada in 2016.

The opening night film is Zacharias Kunuk's Maliglutit (Searchers) and after the festival wraps up in Toronto, it'll travel to other major Canadian cities.

Here are Canada's top 10 movies of 2016 as picked by TIFF.
