I've kind of gone off movies for the nonce but I may watch a few.

"Brand upon the brain!" qualifies for both.

Thanks for hosting this. I already have a few dozen Canadian films lined up to watch thanks to those iCM lists.

IMDb is unfortunately less helpful when it comes to searching for Canadian films; there are hundreds out there which are co-productions with other countries in which Canada is listed as second or third origin country.

This leads me to question what criteria you want us to use to determine eligible films with regards to co-productions. I'm not sure what the predecent was for this in the past.

It was no rules last Canadian challenge. It's really up to you guys. Will not participate myself and I do not have the time nor will to check every movies watched.

I did include a couple of coproduction in the "Canadian movies on the DtC-list". But I did not include a couple of movies from Allan Dwan (moved from Canada to US at the age of seven.)

What do you and the rest think?

Also, as imdb are user-controlled there are no way to know if the country listed as the main producer is so. Some are 50-50 efforts, some even 33-33-33. (There are no way of stating that it was a equal co-effort) I have found several examples on imdb where these stats are all over the place or even missing.

Personally I only go for the main producer plus anything on the official candian lists, but for others adding co-productions aren't factually wrong anyway.

@ 72allin and albajos: will just try to use my own common sense if there are no official rules regarding eligibility.

My stats on the Canada list before beginning the Challenge:

I might just be able to get a Bronze by the month since a large amount of those films are shorts. I'd also like to see how high I can climb in the rankings (aiming for top 400 at least).

I'm definitely in for this challenge!

A couple more unofficial lists for you though:

Canadian Scren Awards
I think this one should be included instead of the Genie awards list. I made this one to include all the winners of the Canadian Film Awards (the title up until 1980), the Genie awards, and the Canadian Screen Awards (as they are now known). This is basically just a much more complete version of your Genies list.

National Canadian Film Day: 150 Canadian Films
A broad introduction to Canadian films prepared to promote Canada's 150th.

The 10 and 3's Top 50 Canadian Films
Prepared by a website which tweaked data on IMDB to create a more comprehensive list of popular favourites in Canadian cinema.

I will also include all movies where they say aboat. (abɐʊt/abʌʊt). Well, if only.

I have 10 movies with Canada as main producer. 3 of those not seen, and 2 of those 3 still on official lists. So I'll see those before going on this summer's roadtrip.

I'm in. Definitely watching some on Canada Day tomorrow. And the US National Gallery of Art has some Canadian experimental shorts showing on Sunday.

Edit: Also, not sure how it work in other countries, but nfb.ca has a ton of videos on their site, as well as a YouTube channel. And Libary and Archives Canada has some old silent movies on their YouTube channel like Back to Gods Country and Carry on Sergeant.

I'm so bad at challenges, even personal ones, but what the hey I'll try this one. Personal goals include getting to 200 Canadian films seen (already at over 160, shouldn't be hard), finishing off everything that's available and yet unseen from Cronenberg, Egoyan and Maddin (also not hard, I've seen nearly everything as it is) and especially seeing a lot more Québecois cinema.

1. (Shorts)
a. Entre deux soeurs / Two Sisters (Caroline Leaf, 1991) 10 m
b. The Metamorphosis of Mr. Samsa (Caroline Leaf, 1978) 10 m
c. Le fleuve aux grande eaux / The Mighty River (Frédéric Back, 1993) 24 m
d. My Dad is 100 Years Old (Guy Maddin, 2006)

All very much worth seeing; the more I think about it the more I believe that anybody entering this challenge should pledge to watch at least a couple of hours worth of National Film Board animations. I don't know of any national cinema where short films, particularly animation, make up such a large chunk of the greatest work.
Here's to the fools who dream.

1. Bon Cop, Bad Cop (Erik Canuel, 2006)
2. Rock & Rule (Clive A. Smith, 1983)
3a. WVLNT: Wavelength for Those Who Don't Have The Time (Michael Snow, 2003) 15 Min
3b. By the Time We Got to Expo (Eva Kolcze and Philip Hoffman, 2015) 9 Min
3c. Whitewash (Nadine Valcin, 2016) 6 Min
3d. View of the Falls from the Canadian Side (John Price, 2006) 7 Min
3f. A Celebration of Darkness (Jaene Castrillon, 2015) 6 Min
3g. Canadian Pacific / Canadian Pacific II (David Rimmer, 1974, 1975) 9 Min
3h. A & B in Ontario (Joyce Wieland and Hollis Frampton, 1984) 16 Minutes

The Canadian Pacifics coming on seemed to be the breaking point for some people in the theater, a lot left when those started. People really weren't feeling the sine wave (maybe double sine wave) in WVLNT

I liked the Canadian Pacific. Mostly because of that beautiful scenery. Reminded me of a small town north-west in Norway. Glad for you that you caught that and the other shorts on the big screen :thumbsup:

4a. Like a Dream That Vanishes (1999) 38 min
4b. The Song That Reached His Heart (1910) 14 min
4c. City of Gold (1957) 22 min = 74 min of shorts

2. Réjeanne Padovani (Denys Arcand, 1973) 10/10
3. Montreal Main (Frank Vitale, 1974) 8/10
4. The Rubber Gun (Allan Moyle, 1977) 8/10
5. The Making of Monsters (John Greyson, 1991) 8.5/10 (35 min), Bring Me the Head of Tim Horton (Guy Maddin & Evan Johnson & Galen Johnson, 2015) 8/10 (31 min) (Total: 66 min)
6. 88:88 (Isiah Medina, 2015) 6/10

Sharing a little bit of joy: A couple of years ago whilst watching Arch Brown's classic adult film, 'Pier Groups', there was a song he used for a memorable sex scene that had stuck with me since; I tried to find its name through several means but all of them failed to my absolute frustration (the voice reminded me of Lou Reed, the song a bit of Dr. John, but nothing, there was no way I could find its title or singer). Until now.... watching 'The Rubber Gun', the song appeared again, and it was none other than Canadian maverick Lewis Furey whose extraordinary songs from his first album are an intrinsic part of the film's text; the name of this infectious song is "Clean Up Time", and it appears at the 4:00 minute mark playing until the end of this compilation clip from Allan Moyle's 'The Rubber Gun': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVG0FSrbORo

Some iffy titles there. I would like to watch The Hurricane and Mansfield Park for this challenge, but are they really Canadian productions at heart?

I will be joining this challenge. My first watch:

1. February / The Blackcoat's Daughter (2015)
Slow-burn psychological horror. The director effectively creates a bleak, cold atmosphere to match the exteriors of a winter-bound Ontario, and it undeniably has effective moments. However, by the end, the payoffs didn't seem good enough to compensate for all the slow scenes and lack of emotional connection with the characters.
4/10
