Please join us for the second film of the season at 7:00 p.m. on

Wednesday, October 12th


Adapted from the critically acclaimed 2017 novel by Catherine Hernandez, Scarborough is an unflinching portrait of three low-income families struggling to endure within a system that’s set them up for failure. It shows the love and perseverance communities can foster, lifting up families to overcome the obstacles placed in their way. 

The film centres on Bing, Sylvie, and Laura, who become friends through their neighbourhood and the morning school program they attend. An empathetic caregiver, Ms. Hina, is a key figure in their lives. She finds herself struggling within the daycare system as she tries to support them.

Scarborough received Honourable Mention at last year’s TIFF awards for Best Canadian film and it was the runner up for the People’s Choice Award. It found major success at the 2022 Canadian Screen Awards, earning eight wins including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay.
