NFB Summer 2017 Events Near You!

Films

It’s summer in Canada! Living in our Northern climate, we know we’ve only got a few short months to enjoy the warm weather and all the outdoor activities that go along with it. But sometimes, we need to escape to the indoors to relax… or at least enjoy the air conditioning.

Below you’ll find a list of screenings and activities that we’ll be involved in across the country. This post is a piece in progress, and we’ll be adding to it as events are booked, so bookmark this page and check back often!
