Directors team for 'Canada' docu in 2010

Seven films will debut at Vancouver Olympics

TORONTO -- As the Toronto International Film Festival kicked into gear Friday, seven Canadian directors were recruited to make auteur documentaries about their hometowns, which will bow at the 2010 Vancouver/Whistler Games.

The films from Gary Burns, Thom Fitzgerald, Atom Egoyan, Julia Kwan, Charles Biname, Don McKellar and Patricia Rozema are being produced by Michael Burns and Nuria Bronfman, Arts and Communications, and Manifest Communications.

Canadian broadcaster CTV, which holds exclusive Canadian TV rights to the 2010 Games, has provided seed money for the project, which is titled "My Canada."
