- The OPEN CINEMA Connect the Docs team spent 2 weeks engaging online with The Secret Trial 5 during their cross Canada screening tour The discussion about security certificates coincided with the announcement of Bill C-51, so the timing for this discussion was poignant and topical. For the grande finale of their cross Canada tour, the OPEN CINEMA Connect the Docs team travelled to Vancouver to meet the filmmakers and webcast their 12th and last screening of the tour.
