This year, the Annapolis Valley Regional Library is participating in National Canadian Film Day on April 29th. What is that, you say? Well, the organizers at REEL CANADA say this:
“April 29 is National Canadian FilmDay, a day to throw off the shackles of fear and insecurity, stand together with Canadians from coast to coast and pat ourselves on the back for something other than various ice-related sports and sports-related doughnut shops. (Not that we don’t love ice-related sports and doughnuts). It’s a light-hearted intervention for our national consciousness, a wake-up call to anyone who has not yet been exposed to the great cinematic stories we tell one another in this cold, vast country. It’s a way to get over ourselves and have some FUN!”
Rosa M. Harvey Middleton & Area Library – screening Dr. Cabbie at 6:30 pm
Windsor Regional Library – screening The Grand Seduction at 6:00 pm
Wolfville Memorial Library – screening The Disappeared at 7:00 pm
