Time flies when you’re having fun in Canada!

Today’s posts show the diversity of Canadian filmmakers, past and present, who have helped create films as varied as the Canadian landscape. Is there a single distinct Canadian filmmaking style? Happily, there isn’t – as today’s posts prove.

Movie Rat: Léolo, part 3 The Word Tamer

The Midnight Palace: Michael Sarrazin’s The Reincarnation of Peter Proud

Thrilling Days of Yesteryear: Niagara

Hitchcock’s World: The Lesson to be Learned in Naked Lunch

History on Film: Passchendaele

Caftan Woman: Alexander Knox

Canadian Cinephile: On Leslie Neilsen – Half-Truths & Fart Jokes

Pamela Fallon Thornley: New Brunswick’s Old Hollywood Connection

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. A winner will be selected by way of a random draw from bloggers who post within the blogathon period.

Many thanks to the NFB!
