Take This Waltz stars Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen, Luke Kirby and Sarah Silverman

TIFF kicks off the eleventh annual Canada’s Top Ten on January 5, 2012 at TIFF Bell Lightbox. The event offers public screenings of feature and short films on the Top Ten list, introductions and Q&A sessions with filmmakers – including Guy Maddin, Philippe Falardeau, Jean-Marc Vallée and Nathan Morlando – and a panel featuring Canada’s Top Ten filmmakers discussing the gangster/crime genre in Canadian film. Canada’s Top Ten will run to January 15. Select films will tour theatres across the country in early 2012, including Vancouver’s Pacific Cinematheque, Edmonton’s Metro Cinema and Ottawa’s ByTowne Cinema. Established in 2001, Canada’s Top Ten celebrates excellence in Canadian cinema and raises public awareness of Canadian achievements in film.
