The Argument (with annotations), Directed by Daniel Cockburn, 2017, Canada, 20 min
What begins as an enquiry on things that mean other things itself becomes a thing that means otherthings, too. And whatever exactly that thing is, the latest by one of Canada’s most ingenious auteurs is another astounding feat of cerebral and cinephilic dexterity.

Threads, Directed by Torill Kove, Canada, 2017, 8 min
In this spellbinding hand-drawn odyssey by celebrated, Oscar-winning animator Torill Kove, a bustling urban habitat becomes an enchanting web of human connection. Threads explores how fundamental attachment is to the experience of being human.

The Botanist, Directed by Maude Plante-Husaruk, Maxime Lacoste-Lebuis, 2017, Canada, 20 min
This startling documentary by Montreal-based Maude Plante-Husaruk and Maxime Lacoste-Lebuis draws us deep into Tajikstan, where a delightfully iconoclastic botanist uses everything and anything around him to make life for his family a little less difficult.

The Drop In, Directed by Naledi Jackson, 2017, Canada, 13 min
On a night like any other, Joelle is closing up her hair salon when a mysterious visitor appears asking too many questions about her citizenship. Nothing is what it seems in this fierce and stylish genre-bending allegory on immigration and belonging.

Milk, Directed by Heather Young, 2017, Canada, 14 min
A reticent young dairy farm employee struggles with the news of an unexpected pregnancy. A methodical cycle of calf births and milk extraction becomes an incisive meditation on the implications of reproduction and the anxiety of impending parenthood.

Now in its 17th year Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival™ highlights the best features, shorts and student shorts from across the country. The breadth of programming selected by filmmakers, programmers, critics and industry professionals represents the creative strength of the country’s best cinema.
