National Canadian Film Day being celebrated in Merritt.
In honor of the holiday, the Nicola Valley Film Society will be showing the film “Water" free of charge at NVIT, starting at 7pm.
"We'd really like as many people as possible come a help celebrate Canadian film. The event will be kicking off the Canada 150 celebrations in the Nicola Valley."
Member Cathy Starrs says the film was written and directed by Canadian Deepa Mehta, and received an Academy Award Nomination in 2007.
"The film has received many positive reviews, and won awards all over the world."
Another free movie to honor National Canadian Film Day is being shown at the Merritt Civic Centre.
Tourism Merritt is screening "Snowtime" beginning at 6pm.
