Canada Now 2017

Canadian cinema has always been a hotbed of talent, throwing up a number of internationally renowned auteurs. This inaugural showcase presents a number of voices new and established in recent Canadian cinema, giving a glimpse of a diverse country and filmmaking community that will transport viewers from the placid waters of Lake Superior to the frost–bitten Arctic Circle, from the ravishingly beautiful Tahltan territory in northern British Columbia to downtown Montréal.

Canada Now 2017 is presented by Telefilm Canada in partnership with the High Commission of Canada and with the support of the Quebec Government Office in London.
