Telefilm Canada’s Made in Canada Spotlight campaign returns to the Apple TV app

Sophomore year includes restoration of Jean-Marc Vallée’s C.R.A.Z.Y., and a focus on Quebecois talent

The Made in Canada Spotlight campaign is back, following a successful launch in 2021. Formerly known as the Canadian Movie of the Week, the 12-week promotion highlights a recently released or classic Canadian film available to rent for only $0.99 on the Apple TV app. The series begins on April 5 with Sarah Polley’s Take This Waltz and concludes the week of June 21 with The Tragically Hip documentary Long Time Running.

The week of May 24 celebrates the French modern classic C.R.A.Z.Y., by Jean-Marc Vallée. This new 4K restoration of the film was unavailable for many years in a digital version.

Telefilm and Apple will also toast Francophone gems with a Made in Québec Spotlight month-long series, beginning May 31 with Xavier Dolan’s Laurence Anyways and wrapping with Sophie Dupuis’ Souterrain.
