TIFF Announces Canada’s Top 10 Films of 2013


For over a decade now, the folks at TIFF have been bringing attention to the best in Canadian cinema by setting up an annual theatrical event known as Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival. They select the ten best feature films of the year (along with the ten best shorts) and screen them at a few major theatres across the country. This year’s top 10 consists of quite a few films from Quebec filmmakers including Louise Archambault’s Gabrielle, which is Canada’s Oscar entry for Best Foreign Language Film. However, there are also a couple of movies featuring big name stars including Denis Villeneuve’s Enemy starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Dowse’s The F Word starring Daniel Radcliffe.
