Before modern cinema, the term motion picture referred to tossing children’s artwork out the window. Hold on to your finger paintings with today's Groupon: for $12, you get one admission to the "On a Grand Scale: Nell Shipman" exhibit at the Kingston Canadian Film Festival on Sunday, March 4 (a $25 value). A reception begins at 2:30 p.m., with a film screening following at 4 p.m.

The Kingston Canadian Film Festival celebrates local and national productions with a three-day presentation of new movies, film receptions, and director and cast discussions. Film enthusiasts explore the life and career of the late Nell Shipman in "On a Grand Scale," a curated exhibition that probes her theatrical contributions as an actress, writer, director, and inventor of the scrolling credit. The silent-film-era artist, known for portraying strong female characters throughout her 13-year career, starred in more than 20 films, including movies based on James Oliver Curwood stories. As the clock tolls 4 p.m., audiences make their way into a darkened theatre for a showing of Shipman's _Back to God's Country_— a taboo-shattering 1919 silent film set in the Arctic wilderness—which will be paired with live musical accompaniment and fake indoor blizzards.
