CHARLOTTETOWN – Island Media Arts Festival 2014 – “the little film festival of big dreams” – is hosting P.E.I.’s celebration of the first National Canadian Film Day, a Canada-wide event created to embrace and support Canadian cinema. The screening on Tuesday, April 29, will consist of a slate of Island-made films and will be held at the Guild in Charlottetown starting at 7 p.m.

“Thanks to the support of P.E.I. Tourism and Culture, we are excited to be offering such a remarkable variety of films, all made right here,” said Cheryl Wagner, curator of IMAF 2014. “Mille Clarkes’ gorgeous doc ‘Island Green’ will follow the Kyle Simpson Movember salute ‘A Beard’s Life.’ And I can’t wait to see Adam Perry’s feature ‘Jiggers.’ Plus this will be the last chance to catch ‘Queen of the Crows’ before it flies off to Cannes. Not to be missed.”

Canadian Film Day is an initiative of REEL Canada, an organization that has put on over 800 festivals of Canadian films for over 200,000 high school students and new Canadians across the country since 2005, including some 1,500 students in P.E.I.

The national Film Day is expected to be an annual event that will take place on the last Tuesday of April each year. Its motto is “To Preserve and Project.”

Admission to the P.E.I. celebration at the Guild is $5 at the door.
