But Canada's still
doing big business.

In the Official Selection of the 73rd Cannes Film Festival, Canada will  be well represented with a feature and a coproduction: Pascal Plante’s Nadia, Butterfly and Viggo Mortensen’s Falling.  Also, Graham Foy’s August 22, this year received the 2020 Semaine de la Critique label! Not to mention that an exciting group of homegrown creators will be part of the Cannes Doc program at the Marché du film.
