Watch as many films from the Great White North as possible from December 1st, 2018 until December 31st, 2018.
- A feature film (Anything 40 minutes or over) counts as one entry.
- A total of 60 minutes of short films count as one entry.
- For TV Series and Mini-Series (40 minute episodes or longer) each episode counts as an entry.
- For TV Series and Mini-Series with shorter episodes, the 60 minute rule applies.
- Rewatches allowed and are good for the soul.
- Try to use your own common sense regarding eligibility and/or ask when in doubt. If it's on any of the lists linked in this post, then it's eligible. If it was nominated for or won a Genie/Gemini/Canadian Screen Award/Etrog, then it's eligible. If it's simply an American movie filmed in Canada, or a Canadian director making an American film, then it's not eligible (unless it meets one of the other criteria).

You can watch a lot of films online for free at the National Film Board of Canada website. They even have a documentary section to make it easier for those of you chasing doubles this month.
Also Participating in the Documentary Challenge this month? Canada is known for its documentary films. And a number of them are also in the Forum's Top 150 Canadian Films list, thus making for some potential triples.

We already have documentaries on display this month, so the bonus/side challenge for this is to watch a movie from every decade from the 1910s to 2010s. While Canadian cinema started to blossom in the 60s and 70s, really took off internationally in the late 80s and early 90s, and started to receive more critical acclaim in the 00s and 10s, its history goes back over a century. There may not be films from Canada's first 50 years, but the last 100 have given us some gems. I encourage you to seek them out.
Bonus/Side Challenge Scoreboard
I'll update the totals as often as I can, but it may take up to a week between updates due to work, travelling home, and vacation time over the holidays. I'll pull together some stats in January, probably around the 4th or 5th. - Last updated Jan 6th, 7:05 PM GMT+8
Bonus one point for the side challenge to everyone who can identify which film the image is a production still from AND also watches the film for this challenge.
