National Canadian Film Day – Maudie



Our  National Canadian Film Day screening of MAUDIE, which is being organized by the Willson Oakville Film Festival, Reel Canada, Sheridan College, Cinemas, and the Milton Film Festival, is moving online! So you can watch Maudie from the comfort of your couch, and participate in a Q&A with Writer Sherry White, and host Alita Rose Madeira, at 9 pm.

Mongrel Media and Reel Canada have generously partnered with us to provide a private screening link for all ticket purchasers on 22 April. You  must begin  screening Maudie BY  7 pm EST (not 730 pm as originally advertised) due to the digital nature of the event.  The Q&A will follow, as a ZOOM conference with OFFA Moderator, Alita Rose Madeira, and writer/Producer Sherry White, at 9 pm EST. You will receive an invitation to this ZOOM conference the day of the screening. To access the film, and Q&A, you must acquire a ticket, or you will not get access to the screening link.



How It Will Work

You will receive a newsletter between 3 pm and 4 pm on Wednesday, 22 April giving you the screening link, and private password for MAUDIE, and you will have until 7 pm to begin screening the film. Please note: if you start screening the film after 7:00 pm, the link will expire by 9 pm so  you may miss the end of the film as the password will be changed at 9 pm (the film is one hour and 55 minutes long).

So please make sure you begin screening the film BY 7 pm.  This newsletter will also include the information for the ZOOM conference call, which will begin at 9 pm EST. For this call, your audio will be muted, but will be able to ask questions through the chat function. The newsletter will include complete instructions for entering into the conference, including the conference ID and password, and you do not need to download ZOOM to participate in this conference.


We hope that you join us to celebrate National Canadian Film Day and support our film industry, which has been incredibly hard-hit by this pandemic.


In the Spirit of Canadian Film,


Wendy Donnan

Executive Director OFFA
