CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Twenty-five film screenings in P.E.I. will help mark the world’s largest film festival in celebration of national Canadian Film Day 150.

Proof that the April 19 festival is the world’s largest is on display through a Google Map that shows all the screenings taking place in Canada and across the globe.

Reel Canada, the not-for-profit organization hosting NCFD 150 in celebration of Canada's 150th birthday, released the map showing screenings taking place in Kazakhstan at the Embassy of Canada, which will be screening “The Rocket,” and the Hong Kong International Film Festival, which will be playing “Window Horses.” Canadians can also use the map to find a National Canadian Film Day screening in their community.
