>This week was the winners of the 2009 TFCA Awards were announced.

Some of Canada’s brightest minds gathered in Toronto and not one of them noticed that it was in fact now 2010.
The night’s guest of honour was David Cronenberg, and he announced the winner of the Rogers Best Canadian Film Award and presented it to Quebec director Denis Villeneuve for Polytechnique. For winner, Villeneuve also picks up a $10,000 cheque.
The award’s other two other finalists were: Benoit Pilon (The Necessities of Life) and Bruce McDonald (Pontypool).
According to Macleans, when Rogers vice-chairman Phil Lind presented the cheque to Villeneuve, the director confessed, “I haven’t paid my Rogers cable bill.”
Me neither Villeneuve, me neither.
Here is the trailer for the controversial and disturbing movie.

The movie is available on DVD now.
