The Man Who Was Always Late, The Woman Who Can't Lie

Agency: Leo Burnett


As a signature event celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary, this year’s National Canadian Film Day 150 will see more than 1,500 screenings in schools, theatres and public squares across the country and in consulates and embassies around the world.
To help promote and drive participation in the festival on April 19, Reel Canada, the non­profit that hosts National Canadian Film Day 150 (NCFD), is launching a Canada-wide campaign developed by Leo Burnett.
The campaign kicks off with two Cinema spots that came together with the help of Canadian film industry icons. ‘The Man Who Was Always Late’ was directed by Atom Egoyan and stars Vinay Virmani.
In addition to cinema, the campaign celebrates that ‘our films come from here’, with screen installations and markers across the country celebrating the places, people and things that inspired Canadian cinema. For example, the burger restaurant where a scene for Room was shot will have tray liners about the film, while Indigo will have bookmarks celebrating books that inspired films.
The campaign launches on March 23rd and runs through April 19th.

This professional campaign titled 'The Man Who Was Always Late, The Woman Who Can't Lie' was published in Canada in March, 2017. It was created for the brand: REEL Canada, by ad agency: Leo Burnett. This Film medium campaign is related to the Public Interest industry and contains 2 media assets. It was submitted over 7 years ago.
