WHAT IS RCtv?

On National Canadian Film Day (NCFD) — Wednesday, April 17, 2019 — thousands of students across the country will watch a great Canadian film, then log into our live-stream to participate in discussions with Canadian stars and filmmakers, and engage in lots of other online fun.

171 schools registered for RCtv last year — that’s over 12,000 students — from every single province and territory:

STUDENTS WILL:

  • Watch and discuss great Canadian films
  • Participate in Q&As with stars and filmmakers
  • Amplify school spirit and national pride by competing in games and quizzes with other schools on a national leaderboard
  • See themselves on the big screen with student-submitted videos and questions
  • Connect virtually with other students across the country
  • Explore Canadian identity, culture and storytelling

TEACHERS WILL BE SUPPORTED WITH:

  • Lesson plans tied to the curriculum
  • A copy of the film being screened (sign up by Friday, February 22 and you can keep the film for your school)
  • Advice and support from our team on making the experience fun and memorable


“We can’t wait to get involved every year!” — Teacher from Holy Cross SS, St. Catharines, Ontario
