CanFilmDay Live

Livestream: April 22
6–10 PM EDT

Featuring Sandra Oh, Jay Baruchel, Colm Feore, Ethan Hawke, Atom Egoyan, Megan Follows, Mina Shum, Philippe Falardeau, Don McKellar and many more.

Hosted by Peter Keleghan and Ali Hassan.

This year, the centrepiece of our all-online edition of National Canadian Film Day is a four-hour live-stream: CanFilmDay Live. The interactive livestream will be broadcast on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and right here on our website from 6 PM to 10 PM EDT (see below for times in your region).

Whether you’re planning to join one of our national watch parties, organizing your own watch party, or just watching a movie at home with your family, you don’t want to miss CanFilmDay Live — and the many guests who will be stopping by from their own living rooms. In addition to the filmmakers and stars, we’ll have other fun and games on the livestream, including Can-con trivia, NFB classic shorts, and even a singalong!
