National Canadian Film Day has always been about encouraging all Canadians to celebrate the incredible achievements of our nation’s filmmakers.
In 2017, NCFD 150 was an event of unprecedented size and scope, which reached an astonishing number of people across the country and around the world. In April 2018, nearly 900 events were held on the fifth annual NCFD, and thousands of Canadians here and abroad helped it take root as an annual tradition.
Film – more than any other medium – has the power to capture the soul of a nation, and when we only watch movies from somewhere else, we lose a part of ourselves. There’s nothing wrong with loving Hollywood films, but they’re no substitute for the connection you can feel when you watch something from your own backyard.
