Free Victoria Day Screenings says
To honour the birthday of our cinema’s patron, the late Ted Rogers, we are proud to present free screenings of four landmark Canadian documentaries in partnership with TIFF’s Canada on Screen program.

Each of these films has been selected from a list of 150 essential films that was compiled through a national poll of industry professionals to commemorate Canada’s 150th anniversary. What better way to celebrate Victoria Day than with these classic works of documentary filmmaking, our country’s national art form?
