Meet the Teams behind the Films of #ocanfilmfest2019

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
  • Director¬†Valerie Barnhart from the short film¬†Girl in the Hallway (Ottawa)
  • Representatives from the short film Rise n’ Shine (West Vancouver)
  • Executive Producer Jim Miller from the feature-length film Trouble in the Garden (Toronto)
  • Director Ray Savaya from CBC Short Film Face-off winning short film Newborn (Toronto) which we’ll be screening at the festival
  • Director Christian Belisle from the multi-Digi60 Award winning short film Overgrowth (Ottawa), screening at this year’s festival
  • Director Tavit Melikian ¬†returns this year, this time with his short film The Order of Things to Come (Montreal)
