We welcome any artifacts or information you may have to enhance the event. As it is also our 150 Anniversary, this will be an added touch to our theme.
The Nicola Valley Film Society will be participating in a Canada 150th celebration along with approximately 180 Film Societies across the country on April 19th. This celebration is called CANADA ON SCREEN and for April 19th every Film Society participating will be screening a Canadian film without charge. This initiative is through the Toronto Film Circuit of which we are associated. The film that we will be screening is “WATER” by acclaimed director Deepa Mehta. This film was released in 2005 and has received many awards and was nominated for an Academy Award in 2007. It will be screened up at the NVIT LECTURE THEATRE at 7:00 pm on April 19th. We are excited about our participation in this Cross Canada event!
