“Welcome, new Canadians! Every month, the NFB Mediatheque invites Cultural Access passholders to join us for a fun-filled afternoon of activities and film screenings.

This month, we’re celebrating Canada’s national parks. Located all over the country, these incredible spaces allow us to consider the unique natural wonders of Canada, as well as the history of its people.

How do we celebrate nature in the middle of downtown Toronto? Good question! We’ve got two activities lined up for passholders on Sunday, August 14 from 1 PM to 3 PM:

First, join us in our cinema to watch some of the NFB’s films about Canada’s natural wonders, including the animated favourites Blackfly and Log Driver’s Waltz, and an informative documentary on Lake Superior’s Pukaskwa National Park. These films are suitable for all ages.

Then, roll up your sleeves and try being a filmmaker yourself! Experiment with different animation techniques in each of our studio spaces to create your own mini-movie about parks and nature. We’ll show you how, whether you’re young or young at heart!

We hope to see you on August 14th at the NFB Mediatheque; it’s the next best thing to being in one of Canada’s national parks!”

Location for the Above Events:

150 John Street
Toronto, Ontario, M5V 3C3
