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

Pasquale Marco Veltri‘s film Words to Remember examines the wisdom that would be passed down to us if our future selves could share their regrets with us in the present moment.  It asks the simple question: What if there was a cure for Alzheimer’s?‎

If people lived life with the end in mind, they would find the nouns that matter most are not places or things, but, human beings. It is only through the hearts and minds we touch, through the peaks and valleys of joy and pain, that any evidence of our existence will remain. Words to Remember examines the heart wrenching pearls of wisdom that would be passed down to us if our future selves could share their reflections and regrets with us in the present moment. For the present moment, is the only moment that can truly make the difference in our lives. – The film’s Official Website
