Feedback from OCanFilmFest Alumni
This festival is wonderful. The programming is really high quality. For a small festival, I had one of my best screenings. The audience is so engaged and intelligent I was taken aback of how intimate the audience interaction was with my film. The festival staff are professional, they really try and promote your film within the community. I will apply again. I recommend this festival. I am honoured I got to take part.

This festival especially caters to the filmmakers and allows them to promote their work in Ottawa. The films shown were amazing! Ranging from dramatic work, to laugh out loud comedy. Very proud to have my film amongst other talented Canadian filmmakers.

We were thrilled to hold the world premiere of The Mayor of Comedy at the Ottawa Canadian Film Festival. The staff and venue were a highlight, thanks for having us.

The go-to festival for indie filmmakers in Ottawa this year. Really appreciate the hard work they put in to promote local talent and indie talent in general. I hope they get bigger over the next few years – the region needs it!
