OCanFilmFest2018 – Thank You

What an incredible night.  Thank you to all of the filmmakers who submitted a film to our festival this year.  Producing a film is no small task and as filmmakers ourselves, we really appreciate what it takes to complete a project.  So many amazing films submitted meant for a challenging selection process.  Congratulations to the filmmakers whose films we screened last night.  We are proud of your achievement.
