First Weekend Club

First Weekend Club is a national, non-profit organization that has been promoting Canadian film and talent since 2003.

Executive Director and Founder Anita Adams, along with her executive team, Katherine Brodsky, Priya Rao and Alexandra Staseson scout national and international film festivals for the very best Canadian films to bring to our members. In curating Canada Screens, we revisited all of the films we’ve sponsored over the years (more than 350 titles) and selected some of our personal favourites! We are confident our viewers will discover many gems in our selection.
