National Canadian Film Day 2020

The Cinematheque is pleased to mark National Canadian Film Day, a one-day, coast-to-coast-to-coast celebration designed to gather Canadians together to watch Canadian films. While Covid-19 necessitates that NCFD-2020 get-togethers be virtual only, we’re still taking the opportunity to bring you outstanding Canadian filmmaking! This year’s lineup includes one program devoted to the classic — a brand-new 4K restoration of 1982’s The Grey Fox, Phillip Borsos’s made-in‑B.C. wonder — and one to the contemporary — EyeCANdy,” a collection of innovative and provocative shorts by independent Canadian animators, curated by the renowned Ottawa International Animation Festival. 

The Grey Fox is rated PG and streams for $7.99.

EyeCANdy: Independent Canadian Animation,” for mature audiences only, streams for free. (Donations gratefully accepted.) 

And if you can’t catch them on April 22, don’t worry. The Grey Fox runs April 22–30. EyeCANdy” runs April 22–28.


Launched in 2014 and organized by REEL CANADA, National Canadian Film Day is held each year in April. Find out more at reelcanada.ca
