Film Festival Celebrates 40 Years of Diplomatic Relations Between Canada and China

To mark the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Canada and China, Library and Archives Canada and the Canadian Museum of Civilization are presenting the Canada-China Film Festival during the month of October.

This film festival will celebrate the establishment of diplomatic relations between Canada and China by presenting a series of films in English with French subtitles, or in Mandarin with English subtitles. The opening night of the Festival will be held at the Canadian Museum of Civilization on October 6, 2010 and will feature two films, Glimpses and Way of the Snowstorm.

The Festival changes its location on October 7, 21 and 28 to Library and Archives Canada, at 395 Wellington Street, in Ottawa. On October 21, Library and Archives Canada will feature an exhibition on early trade between Canada and China, as well as a musical performance by Ms. Xin Ben, the student featured in the film Mr. Mergler's Gift which will be screened that evening.

The Canada-China Film Festival is free of charge and open to the public. Screenings are held at 7:00 p.m. on all four nights.

This festival is made possible by a successful partnership between Library and Archives Canada, Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada, the Government of the People's Republic of China, the National Film Board of Canada, and the Canada-China Friendship Society.
