Dear Friends,

We hoped to write you today with some very exciting news, but given the events unfolding in Ottawa this week, our celebratory tone has been replaced by a feeling of sadness, as well as a sense of responsibility.

We feel we are about to have a very important conversation as a country, and that The Secret Trial 5 has an important role within that dialogue. Now more than ever, we need to ensure that the human narrative is not lost in this discussion.

Given that, we are proud to announce that The Secret Trial 5 will have its theatrical premiere in Toronto at the Bloor-Hot Docs Cinema on November 7th, 2014. The film will screen 5 times over the following week, before moving on to Ottawa for a 3 night run at the Bytowne Cinema beginning on November 16th.

This small theatrical run is essential, as the success of these screenings will determine whether other theatres across Canada program the film. As always, we turn to you to help spread the word. Please encourage your friends and loved ones in Toronto and Ottawa to go see the film!

Tickets for Toronto screenings can be purchased HERE:


Advance tickets for the Ottawa screenings are available the day of each screening.
Details here.


On Sunday Nov 16, there will be a filmmaker Q + A, along with special guests Sophie Harkat, wife of security certificate detainee Mo Harkat, and Lawyer Norm Boxal after the screening.

We are ever grateful for your support, and with your help, we hope The Secret Trial 5 can play in other cities across Canada and be a part of our upcoming national dialogue.

Thank you very much,

The ST5 Team.
