MAPLE SHORTS (QUEBEC)
Have you ever tasted maple syrup? Did you like it? How about trying maple/Canadian short films? At the end of March we will be serving a double portion. Our program chef took great pains to put together this special menu. We wish you bon appetite and we can't wait to see you in your favorite cinema.
The Canadian Shorts night is held under auspices of the Canadian Embassy in Prague.
In the second part of the evening, you wil have a chance to meet Janek Bednarik, a traveller who will take us on a tour around Canada through his photographs and videos.
