Welcome to the Canadian cinema task force of WikiProject Films!


The Canadian cinema task force is a joint task force of WikiProject Films and WikiProject Canada for the purpose of gathering interested editors in the common purpose of improving Wikipedia coverage of the Canadian cinema and raising the quality of already-existing articles.

Canadian cinema may include not only domestic films, but also films made by Canadian filmmakers outside of the region, films produced or co-produced by Canadian companies, and foreign films shooting within Canada. However per Wikipedia:WikiProject Film#Scope, this task force should not include articles about actors, directors and filmmakers. Those articles are covered by adding parameters for the Actors and Filmmakers and Screenwriters projects accordingly.

  • Significant cleanup still needed on Genie Awards and Canadian Screen Awards articles:
  • Jutra Awards is reaching the point where we should consider spinning them off to by-year and by-award lists instead of cramming all the subsections into a single article (also, the single article lists just the winners and doesn't list the nominees; if possible, sources should be located to expand them to full winner-and-nominee lists like many other film awards already have)
  • Lists in Category:Lists of Canadian films by year are incomplete; often they're missing many films that do already have Wikipedia articles to link to, and even films that are listed haven't always had all the relevant details filled in on the table. Prior to 1980 they still only exist by decade instead of by individual year, and those decade lists should still be spun off by year and expanded if possible.
