If you need to celebrate Canadian cinema, you call Guy Maddin. Just last year he was tapped by the NFB -- National Film Board of Canada -- to create a short film for their 70th anniversary. Digging through the archives, Maddin concocted The Night Mayor, the story of a man, Nihad Ademi, as he tries to harness the power of the aurora borealis to offer Canadians visions of their social identity. And now, this year, the riding Winnipeg filmmaker is leading a list of commissioned films for TIFF's new Bell Lightbox headquarters, with the likes of one Atom Egoyan.
