Inspired by several initiatives to promote Canadian film, we started asking film folk what their recommendations are for Canadian films. But not just any films. We're interested in finding out what people would pick for some of the most obscure, underrated, or simply strange Canadian cinematic gems that most people might not have on their radars.
What they came up with may jog your memory or introduce you to some titles you may have never heard of before.
Here's what they came up with, and stay tuned for many more to come.
