National Canadian Film Day

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!”

Thanks to REEL Canada, our library has public performance rights to show these three Canadian films on April 29th.  Plan to join us at one of the following locations.

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

Check at your local branch library or in the online catalogue for great Canadian film titles you can watch at home.
