WHEN IS IT?

Wednesday, April 20

 

WHAT IS IT?

It’s a cross-country celebration of Canadian film that includes screenings, events, panel discussions and more – a day in which we can “pat ourselves on the back for something other than various ice-related sports and sports-related doughnut shops,” as the Canadian Film Day website says.

 

SO HOW CAN I CELEBRATE?

In Burnaby, the Burnaby Public Library is hosting a special Canadian Film Day screening of My American Cousin, B.C. filmmaker Sandy Wilson’s charming 1985 coming-of-age story that traces the story of a 12-year-old Okanagan farm girl growing up in the 1950s – whose life takes a turn for the exciting when her rebellious older American cousin comes to town.

The film, which won multiple Genie awards in 1986, is rated G and suitable for family viewing.

 

WHERE AND WHEN?

Turn out to the McGill branch of Burnaby Public Library, 4595 Albert St., for the movie screening from 7 to 8:30 p.m. It’s free, and you don’t have to sign up, but space is limited, so arrive early.
