  May 1: Log Driver's Waltz (NFB, 1979)
This lighthearted, 3 minute animated short is based on the song "The Log Driver's Waltz" by Wade Hemsworth. Followed by L'Erreur boréale, un film documentaire québécois réalisé par Richard Desjardins et Robert Monderie, sorti en 1999. Les réalisateurs ont construit ce film comme un pamphlet pour dénoncer les atteintes à l'environnement que représente la destruction du patrimoine forestier du Québec, stigmatisant notamment les coupes à blanc pratiquées sur de vastes étendues de la forêt boréale.
