Constructing Canadiana

Canada on Screen

A media-literacy workshop presented by The Cinematheque’s Education and Outreach Department

FREE ADMISSION! How do advertising, television, and film tap into Canadian clichés like hockey, maple syrup, and igloos? Are these stereotypes comforting or cringe-worthy? Join us as The Cinematheque’s Education and Outreach Department screens and discusses Canadian ads and clips from popular Canadian TV programs and movies, deconstructing our constructed Canadiana. Discover how Canadian media reflects this country and shapes our ideas about what it is to be Canadian.


ALL AGES WELCOME
