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


West Wellington resident Anna-Karina Tabuñar is changing perceptions about disability and employability with a documentary film. Talent Untapped is now entering the post-production period and Tabuñar will be looking for public funding in the spring.

Tabuñar, a veteran anchor for CTV Ottawa between 1996 and 2005, will be asking for $10,000 in support via Kickstarter, a crowd-funding platform, which will be used to make the documentary fully accessible to people living with disabilities. Backing the project will reward donors with anything from personal thanks from the filmmakers, to meeting the cast and crew.

“We want it to be something that people can feel. Every single one of us knows someone who lives with, or has lived with a disability,” says Tabuñar.
