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

Winner of the Toronto Film Critics Association prize for Best Canadian Feature of 2016,¬†The Stairs¬†is a challenging look at the lives of those who live on the margins. ¬†We saw this film at the Kingston Canadian Film Festival¬†earlier this year and were blown away by the sensitivity of the filmmaker and the amazing access to the subjects in Toronto’s Regent Park. ¬†The film is now streaming on-demand at¬†tvo.org. ¬†Here’s the trailer.

You can access the film directly at the tvo.org site by clicking  this link.

BlairBack from a great weekend at the Kingston Canadian Film Festival.  Outstanding effort by  all the organizers and volunteers in putting together a well curated and delivered program.

Lots of films to choose from but I wanted to share some personal highlights:

Stella Meghie’s debut feature “Jean of the Joneses” – outstanding script, funny, poignant and real.¬† Beautifully shot and honestly one of the most satisfying stories I¬† have seen in a feature film for quite a while.
