“Things have changed so dramatically in the last 10 years in the film business,” says Egoyan. “Everything is so much more convenient but I don’t think cinema should be convenient. It should involve a kind of pilgrimage to a place, where you make a contract to immerse yourself in an experience, to be captive for those two hours. … When it comes to Cannes, showing your films in the Grand Lumiere Theatre before an audience that is passionately interested and knowledgeable about cinema is the pinnacle.” #CanadaCannes http://www.theglobeandmail.com:80/arts/film/ahead-of-cannes-film-festival-canadian-director-describes-pinnacle-of-film/article18641693/

#Cannes2014 "A haunting look at Hollywood excess. A thriller that explores what happens to a community when a young girl goes missing. A story of a widow raising a troubled teen with help from a mysterious neighbour.
These are the three Canadian films competing for the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival, marking a record-breaking number of Canucks hitting the Croisette when the festival opens Wednesday."

With an acknowledgement from the House of Commons, screenings in over 45 communities and a flurry of social activity, we were able to unite the nation through film on Tuesday. Thank you for making the first #CANFILMDAY a success. 

BREAKING MP for York Centre, Mark Adler gave the following statement today on the 1st Annual National Canadian Film Day: 

National Canadian Film Day
Mark Adler (York Centre, ON, CPC): Mr. Speaker, today is the first ever Canadian Film Day, celebrating Canadian films on all screens, big and small. The timing of the inaugural Canadian Film Day is perfect Mr. Speaker, as it was announced recently that six Canadian films have been selected to compete at the prestigious 2014 Cannes Film Festival. This is an historic milestone worth celebrating. In fact, our government is very proud of our talented filmmakers. We invest more than $600 million annually in the audio visual sector through Telefilm Canada, the National Film Board, the Canada Media Fund, the Canada Council for the Arts and tax credit programs. Mr. Speaker, we support the Canadian audio visual sector because we know how much it contributes to our communities and economies. In 2012-13, film and television production in Canada generated $5.8 billion to the Canadian economy and approximately 130,000 jobs. I invite my honourable colleagues to join me in saluting Canada's wonderful audio visual talent today and every day.
