Collaborate with us


Our mission is to recognize, promote and celebrate the art of cinema by showcasing Canadian films and filmmakers. We are grounded in the belief that Canadian film and filmmakers are distinctive and vital to our country’s culture and the development of the local economy.

To that end we have launched OCanFilmFest Presents, a series of free short film screenings throughout the year in the lead-up to our main festival screenings in November.

 

To maximize access we would like to keep admissions to these screenings free.  As a result, we are seeking collaborators who have access to venues (conference rooms, auditoriums, coffee shops, pubs, for example)  that can be used to host these screenings throughout the city.  Venues with AV setups would be a bonus.  If you have a venue and you would like to collaborate with us on a screening, please contact us.
