Directed by Susan Ridout and narrated by Chris Potter, A Flag for Canada (2003) (also known as I Stand for Canada) documents the events and political controversy leading to the adoption of the "new" Canadian flag in 1965. This sixty-minute historical documentary incorporates extensive archival materials and interviews with many key players, including Members of Parliament who sat on a committee to determine the flag's design. Individuals interviewed include Patrick Reid, Peter Stursberg, the Rt, Hon. John Turner, Senator Marjory LeBreton, Jim Coutts, Gordon Fairweather, Ruth Stanley, Reid Scott, Robert Bothwell, Paul Banfield, John Matheson, Charles Beddoe and Doug Fisher. Music for the documentary was composed by Pat Caird. Paperny Films received a nomination in the Documentary History category for this film at the Yorkton Short Film & Video Festival, Golden Sheaf Awards in 2004. David Paperny, Trevor Hodgson, Daniel A. Mikolay (Producers), and Sue Ridout (Director) received the Antoinette Kryski Canadian Heritage Award at the same awards.
