In collaboration with the Embassies of the Baltic and Nordic nations, the Canadian Film Institute presents this annual festival of films from Lithuania, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Iceland, and Norway.

The far reaches of the festival world – from Berlin and Cannes to Toronto and Montreal – have been gleaned for fresh and exciting perspectives in contemporary film. Inaugurated in 2011, Bright Nights has something for everyone, ranging from fiction to documentary to animation. All films are Ottawa premieres.

Bright Nights is presented in partnership with Winterlude, the annual celebration of all that is Winter in Canada's Capital Region.

The 2017 edition of Bright Nights takes place in February, with exact dates to be announced soon. More information will be posted on the official page, as it becomes available.
