Rating / Age Limit
- Rating: Parental Guidance [PG]
- Suitable for all, but parents should guide their young

CANA Film Festival promises to engage film enthusiasts in a visual extravaganza with themes that inspire discourse on the state of humanity and shed light on social issues through the power of storytelling.
Films that will be screened look to espouse the universality of Catholic Social Teachings through depictions of good versus evil, friendship, hope and disappointments, life, love and loss in the selection of films to be screened. The festival encourages all to participate in conversations and reflections on the principles of Catholic Social Teachings.
Examples of these Catholic Social Teachings (CSTs) include Dignity of the Human Person, Dignity of Work, Promotion of Peace etc. The screenings are paired with panel discussions with experts relevant to the social theme highlighted in the films in an effort to inspire audiences to live a more purposeful and authentic life.
