For 2018, we couldn’t think of anything more important to shine a spotlight on than the accomplishments of women in Canadian film. This conversation is timely, urgent and meaningful, and we want to keep it going and look toward a future in which women — and other underrepresented groups — find their voices and ways to tell their stories in greater numbers.
There are many more Canadian films by women than the ones on this list. Think of it as a sampler, a starting point on your voyage of discovery! There’s a little bit of everything here, but we hope that your explorations will take you further than just these titles. And, of course, while we are shining a spotlight on women for NCFD this year, we encourage you to explore the full spectrum of Canadian films out there and find something for you.
We hope you’ll join the party on April 18, 2018. Canadian films are as diverse as the nation itself and we encourage you to explore them all. We’re sure you’ll find something you love.
