Signatures and Projections on the Plaza launched in early July and play back-to-back, starting at 10 pm six days a week. The films are screened on the sandstone walls of the Confederation Centre overlooking Victoria Row. 

On August 6, an informal social will take place immediately prior to the screenings at 9:45 pm.
