National Canadian Film Day

Screenings and Discussion

Celebrate National Canadian Film Day 150 by screening films on human rights!

The evening begins with a free tour and in-gallery watching of three short films, created especially for the Museum. Learn more about Indigenous perspectives on human rights, Canada’s human rights journey, and Canada’s own experiences with anti-Semitism.

It continues with a special screening of the film Mémère Métisse (My Métis Grandmother), by Janelle Wookey, followed by a discussion featuring the filmmaker and her “mémère” (grandmother).

Janelle Wookey is a Franco-Métis filmmaker from the Canadian Prairies. Her work aims to engage and inspire audiences through the power of storytelling and irresistible humour.

The Museum is offering this program in partnership with REEL CANADA.

This event is free of charge. Spaces are limited and will be first come, first served.
