The Canada Golden Maple Film Festival, hereafter referred to as “CGM”, is sponsored by the State Administration of Film of The People’s Republic of China, the Canada Federal, Provincial, and Municipal City Government. Under the guidance and support of the Governments of China and Canada, as Chinese and Western film co-operation and exchange platform. CGM is devoted to build the bridge between Western culture and Chinese culture for filmmakers and film lovers. CGM is the first film festival that is officially allowed using “Maple” which is Canada’s national tree as the name of the festival.
CGM will take place this September in the 0Bell Performing Arts Centre. The main focuses we are promoting in this festival are “public welfare, inspiration, and cultural exchange”. We aspire to create a greater understanding of multiculturalism through the art of films, and to foster the international development of the film industry.
CGM will choose 54 “Golden Maple” award winners from a selection of theater films and online films. Five broad categories, including theater films, theater short films, online films, and online microfilms, will present awards for best picture, best director, best screenplay, best actor, best actress, etc. The members of the CGM judge committee are well-known directors, screenwriters, film critics, and professionals from North America. Not only CGM will showcase the films, but also there will be a forum to help the communication with Chinese and Canadian film makers.
All patrons over the age of 1 years old must have a ticket in order to enter the auditorium.
