165 WAPIKONI SHORTS TO SCREEN
AT 75 EVENTS ACROSS CANADA ON APRIL 19
National Canadian Film Day 150 (NCFD 150) is a massive one-day celebration of Canadian cinema in honour of our nation’s sesquicentennial. On April 19, 2017, great Canadian movies will be available on air, online and on foot at over 1,700 screenings in cinemas, libraries, public squares and anywhere you can show a film. With free events happening across every province and territory, many involving Canadian film talent, NCFD 150 — a Canada 150 Signature Project — promises to be the largest film festival in the world. Ever.
Presented by REEL CANADA and Québec Cinéma, NCFD 150 is a tremendous opportunity for Canadians of all ages and backgrounds to gather and enjoy the wealth of work by our nation’s storytellers. With the help of partners and audiences in every corner of the country — including TIFF’s great Canada On Screen project which will present 150 screenings across the country on the day — NCFD 150 will put Canadian cinema and our unique nation in an unprecedented spotlight.
