FINAL ‘OTTAWA: CINEMA CAPITAL’ FREE SCREENING
Ottawa: Cinema Capital, the celebration of Ottawa filmmakers, concludes with a FREE screening commemorating WWI on Remembrance Day.
On Saturday, November 11 at 4:00 p.m. at Carleton University’s Richcraft Hall Theatre, the Canadian Film Institute presents LEST WE FORGET (1935) directed by Frank Badgley. This film produced by Ottawa's Canadian Government Motion Picture Bureau, the precursor to the National Film Board of Canada, was made using an extraordinary assembly of World War I archival footage. This film was intended to remind audiences to remember the human cost of the 'Great War'. Admission is free.
This project is funded by Ottawa 2017’s Arts, Culture and Heritage Program (stewarded by AOE Arts Council, Ottawa Arts Council and Council of Heritage Organizations in Ottawa).
The Canadian Film Institute (CFI) was incorporated in 1935 as a federally-chartered, non-governmental, non-profit cultural organization. It is the oldest film organization in Canada and the second oldest film institute in the world. More information can be found online at www.cfi-icf.ca.
