Shorts at Home: Volume 4

The Ottawa Canadian Film Fest presents the fourth in a series of short films that you can watch from the comfort of your home on National Canadian Film Day, April 21, 2021.

About the Shorts at Home Series

Shorts at Home is a series of short film screenings curated by the OCanFilmFest Board of Directors. The selections are non-competitive and are scheduled to run between the annual festival screenings, presented as on-demand videos on Vimeo. The festival publishes a discount code that allows all audience members to rent these videos free of charge right from the comfort of their homes. Participating filmmakers are paid artist fees, in keeping with the festival’s mission to support and celebrate the production of Canadian films.

The Films

Honestly Charlotte
Sarah Hedar

In a world where artists need day jobs, one woman speaks the truth. A routine job interview goes sideways when the applicant gets completely honestly about what it’s like to be an artist trapped in a corporate cubicle.

The Gift
Lorelei E. Miller

When you’re lost and broken what brings you back? A young man struggling with depression embarks on a journey back into the world he withdrew from. The Gift is a journey to find out what really motivates us as we navigate through the challenges in our lives.

Unfinished Manuscript
Vincent Valentino

A writer spends his life chasing that one thing that will define him, eventually coming to terms with what he has gained and what he has lost.

News
Robert Bazzocchi

News is nothing but information–it is its consequences that provoke us.
