This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
A list of winners of the Canadian Screen Award (formerly Genie award) for Best Canadian Motion picture. The Canadian Film Awards were first held in 1949 with the award for Best Feature Film first being presented in 1964. This award was presented annually (except for 1974) until 1979, before becoming the Genie Awards in 1980. For the 2013 award season, the Genie awards and the Gemini awards (for excellence in Canadian television) were merged to form the Canadian Screen Awards. Voted on by the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television.

But the films on this list do reflect the vast range of stories that Canadians tell. It’s a list as diverse as the country itself, providing examples of excellence in every conceivable genre. Think of it as a sampler. If you love movies or Canada or both, there is something here for you.
