The Show Must Go On! Filming in a Time of Covid
OCanFilmFest is thrilled to be co-presenting the panel ‘The Show Must Go On! Filming in a Time of Covid’ at the inaugural Ottawa Black Film Festival (OBFF) on Mar 27, 2021 at 4pm.
In our second part of the Weekend 2 Filmmaker Q&A, we got to talk to filmmakers who were behind Westbound/Eastbound, World of the Fluffs, and Social Mediation. We got to chat about the craft of telling a story with intention, reflecting on the backstory of how these films came together, and sharing some hope for the future.
We spoke with Tom Knowlton (StreetSauce!) and Derek Lamoureux (Inhale) whose films screened during the second weekend of the OCanFilmFest. We got to answer some audience questions, and talked about different approaches to telling a story through documentary filmmaking.
A conversation with the filmmakers featured in the first weekend of the 2020 Ottawa Canadian Film Festival. We talk about the importance of building trust and relationships, approaching filmmaking from different perspectives, creating stories that are meaningful, and how COVID-19 has impacted filmmaking.
