Canada Now 2019

Thursday, March 7 - Sunday, March 10, 2019


Look up. Way up. Up above that distant 49th parallel. Soon you will begin to see the swirling illuminations of those northern cinematic lights: Canada Now 2019 is here.

Yes, your Canadian neighbours are again coming south, bringing tales of restless youth, ancient indigenous stories of tragedy and healing, compelling personal dramas about reinventing our world with the power of our imaginations, plus a trio of riveting, dramatic documentaries about the global environmental crisis, war crimes in Europe, and the struggle for civil rights in the United States of America.

This latest Canada Now selection includes daring and impressive works by both veteran filmmakers and new Canadian visions by emerging directorial talents.

The 2019 Canada Now showcase celebrates the independent creative spirit that has always been a hallmark of Canadian cinema.
