In its second year, National Canadian Film Day will take place across Canada on April 29th , thanks to Reel Canada and a host of sponsors. The one-day event will offer a wide variety of Canadian films for your viewing pleasure. The films will be shown in accessible facilities such as local libraries and schools; in some cases, they may even be viewed online.

Canadian short film screenings are scheduled in many communities in Ontario, Nova Scotia, Northwest Territories, and New Brunswick.  In Manitoba, the CBC is currently hosting an online short film festival in conjunction with NCFD, and viewers have a chance at rating each film.  The selected shorts may be found at: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/now-playing-cbc-manitoba-online-short-film-fest-1.3035503
