Canada Now @ Various venues across the UK

Canada Now 2019 is a showcase of New Canadian Cinema in the UK, beginning with a series of screenings, Q&As, talks and panel discussions from the 24th – 28th April in London, featuring nine outstanding new pieces of filmmaking over one invigorating weekend in the heart of London’s West End.

From the 1st May onwards the films will begin a nationwide tour of cinemas and venues across the UK.

This year’s edition of Canada Now features another bold and diverse selection of the finest fiction and documentary features coming out of the Great White North. With new offerings from established veterans such as Don McKellar’s genre-defying thriller Through Black Spruce (pictured) and Patricia Rozeman’s triumphant family drama Mouthpiece playing alongside breakthrough works from emerging artists such as Akash Sherman’s stargazing exploration Clara and Yan Giroux’s poetic debut For Those Who Don’t Read Me, this year’s Festival showcases more so than ever the sheer depth and range of New Canadian Cinema.
