    it's

    Dear Teachers,

    Can't we really say "it's" if we are referring to "it was" in a sentence.

    Example:

    It's one of my favorite movies that we saw yesterday?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you want to, go ahead, but your audience will interpret it as it was.

    No, my point is, is it true that we cannot use "it's" if we are referring to "it was"?

    Yes, it's true. You can't.
