There’s also a full selection of classic Canadian films, like “The Devil’s Own,” “Rapture,” “The Day After Tomorrow” and “The Haunting of Hill House.”
There’s also an extensive selection of Canadian movies, including classics like “Saving Private Ryan,” “A Christmas Carol,” “Das Boot” and more.
And, of course, there are a slew of movies that are not Canadian, including American films such as “The Big Lebowski,” “Friday Night Lights” and others.
But the list also includes movies from other countries that are often overlooked in Canadian theatres.
“I think the big advantage that we have with these films is that they’re not really that widely known and that makes them easier to discover,” said Julie Brouillette, director of the Canadian Media and Communication Research Centre.
“It’s more accessible and more accessible to people who aren’t necessarily fans of Canadian films or filmmakers or Canadians,” she added.
Ms. Brouillette said she hopes the list will inspire people to visit the theatres and see what’s new.
“There’s a lot of films that are available on Netflix that have never been released before,” she said.
“So, I hope this will inspire some new people to see what they missed out on in the past, or that they didn’t know about before.”
