On Sunday (Dec. 21), the film festival presents the Shortest Day program featuring Canadian short films. The program includes Oscar-nominated classics, animations and new releases at the free event.

The program offers a family matinee, starting at 3:30 p.m., and will feature family-friendly shorts in the cozy and festive theatre. Warm apple cider is avaialble for $2.

At 7 p.m. the Canadian comedy shorts will be reeled out at the 19+ event. Follow the candle-lit walkway into the theatre, watch eight comedy shorts, and enjoy a glass of mulled wine for $5.

Both screenings are offered for free, so organizers suggest arriving early to get your seat. Donations are welcome.

The films are showing at the Vic Theatre at 808 Douglas St.
