See a classic slice of northern cinema free on National Canadian Film Day

Apr 17 2018, 4:40 pm

The Calgary Underground Film Festival is kicking off National Canadian Film Day this Wednesday by offering a free screening of 1995’s Blood & Donuts.

The movie follows the story of a young vampire holed up in a 24-hour diner in ’90s Toronto.

It has been described as a “very Canadian horror film” by movie review site Oh, the Horror! and was selected for the Toronto International Film Festival and the Cinefest Sudbury International Film Festival in 1995, and by the Singapore International Film Festival in 1996.
