The Toronto International Film Festival has revealed their picks for the year’s best in Canadian cinema.

Dubbed Canada’s Top 10 Film Festival, the 16th annual festival showcasing homegrown talent announced the top 10 features, shorts and student short films on Wednesday in Toronto. Chosen by a panel of filmmakers and industry professionals, this year’s selection serves to promote Canada’s diverse and contemporary cinematic voices from established directors to emerging filmmakers.

This year’s notable selections include Xavier Dolan’s “It’s Only The End Of The World”, “Mean Dreams” starring Sophie Nelisse, Colm Feore and Bill Paxton and “Maligultit (Searchers)”, an Inuit adaptation of the John Ford Western “The Searchers”.

“Canada continues to deliver superb film talent to the world,” TIFF’s Artistic Director Cameron Bailey says. “This year’s Canada’s Top 10 lineup ranges from British Columbia to Nunavut to Nova Scotia, telling stories that show Canadians who we are. Smart, emotional and provocative, these films showcase both world-renowned names such as Xavier Dolan and impressive newcomers like Ashley McKenzie and Johnny Ma. To open this year’s Canada’s Top Ten, we are honoured to present a remarkable new film by one of our most important and most influential directors working today, Zacharias Kunuk’s ‘Maliglutit (Searchers).'”
