One of the best ways to celebrate National Canadian Film Day is if you’re in the Vancouver region is the Celluloid Social Club, hosting National Canadian Film Day tonight. Head on over to the Anza Club at 3 W 8th Avenue for some screenings and a chance to mingle with film enthusiasts and people working in the industry. Special screenings of exclusive films will be shown tonight to celebrate the occasion. Films submitted for the 8th Annual Hot Shot Shorts Contest will also be viewed tonight showcasing some small but interesting movies.

If Bell is your service provider, The Movie Network, HBO Canada, and the Space channel will be airing these flicks throughout the day.
