National Canada Film Day: Light(s) at the End of the Tunnel
April 6, 2021
How about a shot of hope? In order to capture a timely snapshot of the moment, we are all living through, this year's National Canada Film Day (NCFD) asked some of the nation’s talented rising stars to interpret the theme: Light at the End of the Tunnel.
These 15 emerging filmmakers have created eleven brand new original short films, commissioned by REEL CANADA and Netflix. The films range from one to eight minutes in length and include documentaries, animation and live action, in both English and French, by filmmakers from across the country.
The filmmakers have been given only nine weeks from green light to delivery, with each project receiving $10,000 and some production support generously provided by William F. White International across the country (and MELS for Quebec-based projects).
Enjoy the world premiere of these eleven shorts on April 21, 2021, with a special event featuring the films, discussions with the filmmakers, and more.
