"Warrendale" is a 1967 documentary film by Canadian filmmaker Allan King. It was originally produced for broadcast on CBC Television, but was never shown due to King's refusal to edit out the copious profanity in the footage.

The film is an uncompromising cinéma vérité look at a day in the lives of emotionally disturbed youths housed in a facility named Warrendale. The film is brutal, powerful and unforgettable.

Warrendale won awards at the Cannes Film Festival and French director Jean Renoir declared King a great artist.

In 2002, "Warrendale" was honoured as a "MasterWork" by the Audio-Visual Preservation Trust of Canada. [http://avtrust.ca/masterworks/2002/en_film_3.htm]
