YOU ARE THE FILMMAKER. ON SEPTEMBER 10TH, SHOW THE WORLD WHAT IT MEANS TO BE CANADIAN.
Canada In A Day will capture one day in our lives. No matter where you are, in Canada or around the world, during those 24 hours – any time from 12AM to 11:59PM on September 10th – record yourself and show us your story.
Canada In A Day is a country-wide project built from crowd-sourced footage filmed by YOU that will be uploaded BY YOU and then crafted into a celebration of Canadian stories by award-winning director Trish Dolman. The finished film will air on CTV as part of our country’s 150th anniversary celebration.
From many of these individual stories will come a film that shows who we are as a country in this one moment in time. A time capsule for Canada.
We want all Canadians to be part of this amazing event. Show us how you feel, what moves you and what concerns you. Your film, your voice, your chance to speak to Canada and the world.
We want your voice to be heard.
Canada In A Day is inspired by the original award-winning Ridley Scott film, Life in a Day. Shot in 2010 and released in 2011, Life in a Day was the remarkable story of one day on Earth. The project garnered more than 80,000 submissions from around the world – powerful moments shot by contributors from Australia to Zambia and from the heart of bustling major cities to some of the most remote places on Earth.
Since then, six other countries, Britain, Italy, Japan, Germany, India, and Spain have created similar films to capture their nations.
Now it’s Canada’s turn.
