The animated film "Snowtime!" was the top Canadian box office performer in 2015.
The 3D feature earned $3,359,425 last year, and is the latest recipient of the Cineplex Golden Screen Award for Feature Film as the year's biggest homegrown ticket draw.
The Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television will recognize the film at the Canadian Screen Awards on March 13.

It hit Quebec theatres in November and is set to expand across Canada on Feb. 12.
