All 20 Canadian films in the Short Cuts program are eligible for the IWC Short Cuts Award for Best Canadian Short Film and the IWC Short Cuts Award for Best Short Film.

In addition to the 20 films included in Short Cuts, there are five Canadian works in the Wavelengths program, screening as part of the Wavelengths short-film section or paired with another title.
