REEL CANADA is an initiative of members of our national film and television industry whose mandate is to introduce students, including ESL learners, to the power and diversity of Canadian film and engage them in a conversation about what it means to be Canadian. To do this, REEL CANADA organizes day-long film festivals programmed by the students themselves from a curated selection of features, documentaries, animated programs and shorts. Special guest speakers such as actors, directors and other prominent personalities present the films and take part in Q & As afterwards. We also have a number of educational resources available, designed to help teachers use Canadian film as a tool for learning in a number of subject areas. Our programming is delivered in both English and French. Visit reelcanada.ca for more info.
