TOP TEN CANADA: With all those foreign film entries, organizers felt there was a need to highlight the homegrown talent. They created Top Ten Canada, a subcompetition of Canadian films as selected by a panel of filmmakers, programmers, journalists, academics and industry professionals.  Each film selected must have either premiered at a Canadian film fistival or had a commercial theatrical release in Canada within the calendar year. 

THE FILM REFERENCE LIBRARY: The FRL houses the largest collection of English language Canadian film-related material, including many hard to find Canadian shorts and features, classic Hollywood, contemporary, and seminal non-English language films. It is open year-round and available to the public, scholars, media, industry, students, film buffs, and organizations for a nominal fee or a membership on per visit basis. It also houses 16,000 books, videos and scripts.

CANADIAN FILM ENCYCLOPEDIA: The CFE offers comprehensive filmmaker biographies, commentary and filmographies as well as original writing from Canadian critics, professionals, academics and theorists.
