WINNER OF 2021 telus audience choice award: special presentations

Following their Oscar-nominated portrait of RBG, co-directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen turn their sights on another legendary woman Julia Child. An incredible cookbook author and television superstar, Julia changed the way Americans think about food, television and women.

Using never-before-seen archival footage, personal photos and cutting-edge food cinematography, JULIA traces Child's surprising path. From her struggles to create and publish the revolutionary cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961), which has sold more than 2.5 million copies to date, and her calling as an unlikely television sensation, this film tells the empowering story of a woman who found fame in her 50s.

Available online from Friday, September 24 at 9 AM to Sunday, September 26 at 9 AM.
