We have re-branded the festival. Please join us at the Ottawa Canadian🍁 Film Festival.

Ottawa Indie Fest

Ottawa Indie Fest 2017 took place on June 3, 2017 at La Nouvelle Scène in downtown Ottawa.  We were blown away by the number and quality of submissions that we received this year.  Congratulations to the filmmakers.
