Canada Now 2017 is the inaugural showcase of New Canadian Cinema in the UK.

With bold new offerings from established directors such as Bruce McDonald, Ann Marie Fleming, Zacharias Kunuk, Anne Émond and Nettie Wild, as well as stunning debut features such as Kevan Funk's Hello Destroyer and Andrew Cividino's Sleeping Giant, this diverse programme will transport you from the placid waters of Lake Superior to the frost-bitten Arctic Circle, from the ravishingly beautiful Tahltan territory in northern British Columbia to downtown Montréal, by way of the blood-soaked rinks of minor-league ice-hockey and an unforgettable monochrome road trip across Nova Scotia featuring the ghost of Andy Warhol and a killer 1970s soundtrack.
