Welcome: We've Started a Podcast

Welcome to Filmed in Canada, the podcast about Canadian movies. Two times each month (or more frequently as we discover our stride) we will share our conversations about movies from the largest country in the Western Hemisphere. Our definition of a "Canadian" movie will be flexible but we’ll be focusing on works that are made principally by Canadian talent, that tell Canadian stories or are funded by Canadian tax money. Thank you for listening. We hope you’ll be entertained and be watching movies.
