CANADA ON SCREEN VIDEO GUIDES


 

In honor of Canada’s sesquicentennial in 2017, Canada On Screen was the Country’s most ambitious year long retrospective. The free programme featured moving-image installations, special events and guests, an extensive online catalogue, and screenings across the country, all based on a list of 150 essential moving-image works from Canada’s cinematic history, and compiled through a national poll of industry professionals. Canada on Screen is a co-production between TIFF and three core project partners — Library and Archives Canada, the Cinémathèque québécoise, and The Cinematheque in Vancouver.

 

As part of Canada On Screen, The Cinematheque produced a series of digital video study guides launched on April 18 th 2018 for National Canadian Film Day. This is a free online resource for students, educators, or anyone wanting to learn more about Canadian cinema. These four guides explore three primary topics—Canadiana Constructed (Parts 1, and 2), Female Voices, and Indigenous Voices—and investigate how Canada’s diverse, multicultural identity has been constructed in our media. Each film also has accompanying written curriculum outlining activities and resources in the classroom (click on the images to access the videos).
