National Canadian Film Day
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
