O Canada Blogathon: It’s a Wrap!

st

We make jokes about Canadians saying ‘sorry’ all the time, but this time we’re really sorry to see this amazing event come to an end. Ruth of Silver Screenings and I thank everybody who took the time to watch and write something honouring Canada’s movies and movie people. So many eras, figures and types of films were covered so well. The full archive of posts, related previews and all announcements is now here  to be enjoyed anytime, please make sure you’ve visited all the great blogs who contributed wonderful reviews and profiles.

Thanks to the good (and very Canadian) folks at The National Film Board of Canada (NFB), one lucky blogathon participant will receive a DVD of Sarah Polley’s film Stories We Tell.

The blog drawn is A Shroud of Thoughts. Congratulations and once again a huge Thank You to everyone for taking part and making this such a fun event :) Timbits for everyone!
