The Kiwanis Club of Forest, in partnership with the Wiiwkwedong Arts Collective of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation, proudly present Rhymes for Young Ghouls, a residential school-themed film, as well as, two additional short films: Grandfather Drum, and Wave A Red Flag.
Rhymes for Young Ghouls is a 2013 drama film set in 1976 on a fictional Mi’kmaq reservation in the context of the residential school system. It is a very difficult story that is presented from the perspective of a teenage girl, but it is a story we must all face and understand. The film was presented at TIFF in 2013 and it was awarded Best Canadian Feature Film at the 2013 Vancouver International Film Festival.
National Canadian Film Day 150 (NCFD 150) is a massive one-day celebration of Canadian cinema in honour of our nation’s sesquicentennial. On April 19, 2017, great Canadian movies will be available on air, online and on foot at over 1,700 screenings in cinemas, libraries, public squares and anywhere you can show a film. With free events happening across every province and territory, many involving Canadian film talent, NCFD 150 — a Canada 150 Signature Project — promises to be the largest film festival in the world. Ever.
