Our recurring series dedicated to showcasing the best of Canadian cinema presents two neglected classics: Terrance Odette's Heater (1999) and Ron Mann's Listen to the City (1984).
- Listen to the City
This rare outing into fiction filmmaking by veteran documentarian Ron Mann presents an expansive, Nashville-like portrait of an economically stricken Toronto in the mid-1980s, boasting a large cast of alternative culture icons and local personalities — including the late and sorely missed NDP leader Jack Layton.

TIFF's Canadian Open Vault programme is part of our efforts to make our country's rich cinematic heritage more accessible to our audiences. Expanded from its annual showcase at the Toronto International Film Festival, Canadian Open Vault now presents Canadian classics every season at TIFF Bell Lightbox.
