The first day of winter will be on December 21. This means that this day will have the least amount of daylight during waking hours, making it the shortest day of the year. To welcome the winter solstice, and to celebrate Canadian short films at the same time, a nation-wide film festival will be held on December 19, 20 and 21 called The Shortest Day.
The Shortest Day festival is brought to us by the National Film Board, Telefilm Canada and Sodec Quebec. Depending on where you live, you and your family will be treated to a variety of entertaining Canadian short films. Click on the Venue link below to find a screening near you:
These film screenings should prove to be an excellent way to spend time and enjoy some Canadian short films with friends and family, and a fun way to start your Christmas holidays.
Enjoy the festival!
