Meaghan Brackenbury reports on the Ottawa Canadian Film Festival on CKCU’s Midweek with host Devon Platana. Interviewees include OCanFilmFest co-founder Blair Campbell and filmmakers Ray Savaya and Mariana Phung. (October 30, 2019)
One of the differences between seeing a film at a local multiplex and seeing a film at a festival is the chance run-ins with the teams of visual storytellers behind the films you will see. This year we are proud to welcome many members of teams behind the featured films, many visiting Ottawa from near and far.
Confirmed attendees so far (we’ll update the list so check back) include:
Director Matt Kelly, comedian Sandra Battaglini and members of the team behind the feature-length documentary The Mayor of Comedy (Toronto) which will enjoy its world premiere at ocanfilmfest2019
We are pleased to announce that Beau’s Brewery is a sponsor for our 2019 Festival.
Since 2006 Beau’s Brewing Co. has been brewing interesting, tasty beers like our Lug Tread Lagered Ale using the best ingredients & local spring water. They take pride in creating unique, wonderful and certified organic craft beer, conceived with honest consideration for the environment and local communities, and delivered with a true sense of friendly relationship.
