For those who appreciate a good movie, April 22 is the day to indulge in Canadian films to celebrate Canada’s official film day.

National Canadian Film Day (NCFD) is a massive one-day celebration of Canada’s film and culture and will be moving movie screenings and events to an all-online “social distancing” edition this year.

This year, the NCFD is highlighting their CanFilmDay Live event – an interactive livestream broadcast – which will take place on YouTube and on their website from 3 to 7 p.m. on April 22.

The livestream will feature engaging activities, conversations with filmmakers and other industry professionals, short videos submitted by Canadians and more.

Meanwhile, there will be a variety of programs throughout the day with films ranging for families, children and seniors.

Kids' activities such as games, printable colouring pages, scavenger hunts and educational content are also available online.
