A big thank you to all those who attended our first Canadian Screen Arts Festival! Thank you for your continued support of Canadian film.

We look forward to seeing you all at next year’s festival!


The Academy’s Canadian Screen Arts Festival is a curated screening series that offers the best in contemporary filmmaking.

This exclusive event series will feature five Canadian Screen Award nominated films that epitomize the best in Canadian visual storytelling. Every Saturday will see a different film being screened, with each screening set to include door prizes, special guests, or pre-taped content created especially for the series by the filmmakers. Screenings take place from coast-to-coast-to-coast, with events each Saturday in Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal, St John’s, and Iqaluit.
