The Shortest Day
December 21, 2014

Join the Canadian Film Institute and the National Gallery of Canada on the shortest day of the year (December 21) to watch some great, family-friendly short films. The program is part of the annual cross-country celebration organized by Telefilm Canada and its partners the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and Société de développement des entreprises culturelles (SODEC).

The Shortest Day was initiated by Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée (CNC) in France in 2011 and has spread to more than 50 other countries.
The Ottawa program will feature an hour-long kids program at 11:00am that has fun, easy to watch classics for the "8-and-under" crowd, such as The Cat Came Back. Families will enjoy the 1:00pm screening with memorable films such as The Sweater and the Academy Award winner The Danish Poet.
Hang out at the National Gallery before or after the screening to take part in their Artissimo workshop, visit the exhibits or do some last minute shopping in the bookstore.
