It was an awesome #OCanada party!

Thank you for sharing your insights and your research, as well as your interest in Canadian filmmakers.

We learned a lot from you. You explored all eras and genres – from the silents to recent releases, and from comedy to horror.

We’re throwing another bash next February, and we hope to see you then.

In the meantime, here a few final, but fabulous, entries.
