SUDBURY INDIE CINEMA GIVES THEIR TOP PICKS FOR NATIONAL CANADIAN FILM DAY!

Today is a special day set aside to appreciate all things Canadiana! There’s just nothing like Canadian film, the indoctrination starts early with childhood favourites like Mr. Dressup, Sharon, Louise & Bram and Polka Dot Door. As we get a little older we’re introduced to Anne of Green Gables and Fly Away Home that both project coming of age stories against the kind of scenery we can only find up here. If you were really into the drama there’s the many regenerations of Degrassi to get you through – ‘it goes there’. Now all grown up you’re ready to discover the wild and wonderful world of Canadian cinema! Often known for its particular style of camp, breath taking backdrops and (let’s face it) production value, filmmakers have proven again and again that against all odds Canadian stories demand to be told!

It was put best by Sudbury Theatre Centre’s artistic executive director, Caleb Marshall earlier this year “We must tell our stories. We must see ourselves reflected among the other stories from around the world. Not only to build pride, but also to celebrate our unique shared experience, to underscore our common humanity with the rest of the world and to remind us of how fortunate we are.” Putting that message into action Sudbury Indie Cinema has organized a double header of their member’s recent favourites November 19th at Sheridan Auditorium (154 College St)! Juste La Fin Du Monde will screen at 5PM and Sleeping Giant will play at 7PM, $10 suggested donation for both shows. Want to celebrate a bit more? We’ve also got top recommendations from Sudbury Indie Cinema’s programmer to enjoy any day of the year!
