Sunshine Coast Film Society
SPECIAL FREE SCREENING: Canada On Screen 150th Birthday Event

Canada 2001, 161 min, drama.
Director: Zacharias Kunuk. Inuktitut with English subtitles.

“…an experience so engrossing it is like being buried in a new environment. The Fast Runner is passion, filtered through ritual and memory.”
— Roger Ebert,

SCFS joins with Film Circuit’s Canada On Screen to offer this Canadian classic free to Sunshine Coast residents in recognition of Canada’s 150th birthday. The first film ever made in the Inuktitut language, Atanarjuat tells a culturally accurate tale of love and revenge. Winner of 26 international awards, this powerful and challenging film was shot on location in the Canadian Arctic. Atanarjuat is not only a spellbinding story about an individual and his culture and community, but it’s also a landmark in Canadian film history. Happy Birthday, Canada.

Note that our 7 pm screening time is half an hour earlier than usual to allow for the length of the film.
