Year of Production: 2016
Based on the highly successful 2011 documentary Life in a Day by Academy Award-winning director Kevin McDonald and Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions, Canada In A Day is a crowdsourced film event drawn from footage filmed by Canadians across the country and around the world on one single day – September 10, 2016.
Canadians were asked to film part of their day or answer from a set of questions — What do you love? What do you hope for? What do you fear? and What does Canada mean to you? The incredible amount of submissions were then edited together by award-winning director Trish Dolman into a celebration of the country and its people. The final film reflects the fabric and diversity of Canada.
Canada In A Day is not only an opportunity to reflect on what it means to be Canadian, it is also a celebration of the nation’s 150th Anniversary.
