Short film fest.jpg
Today is the winter solstice, the official start of winter.  It's also the shortest day of the year and if you feel like marking the occasion, today you can take in a medley of short films at The Shortest Day Short Film Celebration for the first time in Canada.

The country-wide festival is a one-day celebration of short movies and it's FREE.  Originating from France back in 2011,  the event has now spread to 20 countries.  Élise Labbé is the head of festivals for the National Film Board of Canada. She explained how the day works and what kind of short films will be screened.
