A family-friendly event, the 2008 CAN Film Festival will celebrate all that is magical and fun about going to the movies. The event will showcase three viewings of the winning films to be held at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Before each viewing, guests will walk the red carpet with all its glitz and glamour. After guests make their way through the flashing light bulbs of the paparazzi and enter the theater, they will experience interactive “movie set” themed activities, sights, sounds and tastes stationed throughout the cinema gallery.
