Event Details

CanFilmDay is an initiative of REEL CANADA, a non-profit organization that brings festivals of Canadian films to communities and schools across the country, all year long. 2024 marks the 10th anniversary of CanFilmDay and this year's theme is "Films That A.I. Could Never Make". 

In honour of CanFilmDay, the library will host a free screening of Ballerina.

Best friends Félicie and Victor hatch a plan to escape from their rural orphanage in 19th-century France. Félicie dreams of becoming a ballerina, while Victor wants to use his brainpower to invent things. After busting out, Félicie makes her way to the Paris Opera where she joins a class of highly trained dancers who are auditioning for the lead in a production of "The Nutcracker."

Ballerina is rated PG for children 5-7 and may not be suitable for children under 5. Registration is not required.
