April 20, 2016 is National Canadian Film Day, 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. 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.
REELFEST Reel Fest is the Elgin-St.Thomas edition of the National Canadian Film Day extending from April 20th-24th 2016. This mini film festival features free viewings of unique and engaging Canadian Films. There are films for all movie-goers, from Joshua Jackon's heart-wrenching performance in "One Week" to the hilarious Canadian classic "Strange Brew".
