Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre celebrates National Canadian Film Day

On April 17, the Bruce County Museum  & Cultural Centre invites film enthusiasts and community members alike to celebrate National Canadian Film Day with two award-winning films that capture the resilience of the human spirit.

At 11:00 AM in the Museum’s Bruce Power Theatre, see “Run Woman Run” (2021), a feel-good anti-rom-com that follows the journey of a single mother facing a health scare who decides to transform her life by training for a marathon with guidance from the spirit of her ancestor. Directed by Zoe Leigh Hopkins (Heiltsuk/Mohawk), this film was the winner of the Audience Choice Award and Moon Jury Prize at imagineNATIVE in 2021.

At 2:00 PM, see the visually stunning “Brother” (2022), adapted from David Chariandy’s award-winning novel. The film follows the journey of two Black Canadian brothers growing up in 1990s Scarborough as sons of Caribbean immigrants. Together they explore questions about masculinity, identity, and family while navigating the challenges of being outsiders in a new country. The film was named to TIFF’s Canada’s Top Ten list for 2022 and was the winner of 12 Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Picture.

National Canadian Film Day is presented by Reel Canada.
