Published Mar 31, 2021Whether you're a horror fanatic, a sci-fi lover, a year-round Christmas movie buff or more of the cuddle-up-on-the-couch-with-a-tub-of-ice-cream and watch a rom-com type, Telefilm's See It All has something for you.
The Canadian organization's new tool guides you through hundreds of Canadian films available to rent, buy or stream for free. Telefilm culls its diverse catalogue of films on the Apple TV app, Netflix, Crave, Prime Video, CBC Gem, the Cineplex Store and the NFB — meaning there are plenty of options for everyone.

The Apple TV app's "Movie of the Week" Goes Canadian
Telefilm is spotlighting Canadian filmmakers with a new Canadian Movie of the Week series exclusively on the Apple TV app. Each week, one Canadian film will be featured on the Apple TV app and available to rent for only $0.99. The campaign kicks off March 30, and runs until after Canada Day.
The first film being highlighted is The Rest of Us, running from March 30 to April 5, followed by Les Boys, running April 6 to 12. Next in the spotlight are Wander, running from April 13 to 19, and Canadian Strain, running from April 20 to 26.
Shot in North Bay, ON, Aisling Chin-Yee's The Rest of Us follows a divorced mother and her daughter as they contend with living in the same house as her ex-husband's second wife and daughter following his unexpected death, leaving them homeless. With a runtime of 80 minutes, it's the perfect film to throw on when you want ample drama but don't have hours of free time.
Winner of a Golden Reel Award, the first instalment in Louis Saia's Les Boys franchise is a Quebec-made film about an amateur hockey team that analyzes every male stereotype in a comedic, light-hearted manner.
Get ready to be on the edge of your seat! April Mullen's Wander follows a mentally unstable private investigator who becomes convinced that a suspicious death in the small town of Wander is linked to a conspiracy cover-up that caused the death of his daughter.
With only a $10,000 budget and just nine days to shoot, Geordie Sabbagh's Canadian Strain follows boutique drug dealer, Anne Banting (played by Jess Salgueiro), who, when cannabis becomes legal in Canada, is swiftly run out of business by the biggest gangster in town — the government.
These are just a few of the titles showcased on the "Canadian Movie of the Week" promotion on the Apple TV app, and only a handful of the hundreds of titles available through Telefilm.
