Canada's Top Ten + Canadiana Cool: Director's Take

Posted by Drake, 4 months ago

Canada's Top Ten Film Festival is all about highlighting Canadian talent in film. Through this selection, we get to see how different Canadian stories manifest on the big screen. As purveyors and revelers of Canadiana cool, we loved putting together the Chesterfield Lounge and filling it with maple syrup pillows, wild life and other things that scream "Oh Canada," but we also know that the definition of "Canadian" isn't always a tangible concept so we talked to some of the directors to get their take on what Canadian identity means to them.

We used our expertise in Canadiana cool to create a set for the 16th Annual Canada's Top Ten Film Festival. Read about the behind-the-scenes set up that put it all together.
