Come and Watch Great Canadian Films Under the Stars

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, is pleased to invite members of the public to join him for the first-ever Rideau Hall Movie Nights, on August 17 and 19, 2014, in Ottawa. Featuring outdoor screenings of acclaimed Canadian films on the grounds of the official residence of the governor general of Canada, this special event's complete programming promises to entertain the whole family.

"Thanks to a dynamic partnership with the Canadian film industry, this one-of-a-kind summer gathering is set to celebrate Canada's cultural vitality and talent," said the Governor General.

"I am particularly looking forward to connecting with thousands of fellow moviegoers on the grounds of Rideau Hall, and to enjoying great Canadian films up on the big screen."

On August 17, the public is invited to come and enjoy an English screening of The Grand Seduction, at 9 p.m. At 8:40 p.m., director Don McKellar will be on hand to talk about his filmmaking process and how the film's story was taken to Newfoundland and Labrador.

On August 19, Louis Cyr: l'homme le plus fort du monde will be screened in French at 9 p.m.

At 8:40 p.m., an on-stage conversation with producer Christian Larouche, director Daniel Roby, and actor Gilbert Sicotte, will provide us with insight into how they brought the life and battles of Louis Cyr to the big screen in this award-winning film.

And in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the National Film Board of Canada, a selection of short films will be shown on both nights, prior to the screenings of the feature films.

Members of the public can bring their blankets and a picnic and settle in to watch these films under the stars. Free popcorn will be available on-site on a first-come, first-served basis.

All activities are free of charge.
