Indigneous Voices Film Festival – free!

20-21 April 2022

Celebrate Indigenous Voices with National Canadian Film Day’s 2022 spotlight films.

To participate, MMPL is excited to offer three films, shown at four screenings.

To further honour the theme, Mississippi Mills Public Library is encouraging donations, at all our film screenings, to SchoolBox North for a new library project called Gikendaaso anwebi waakaa’igan, which means “Place of Learning and rest.” SchoolBox North project update here.

National Canadian Film Day is presented by REEL Canada. The Elizabeth Kelly Library Foundation is matching all donations to SchoolBox North.
