This light romantic film is also a definite tearjerker if you’re sensitive or oblivious to foreshadowing. It’s the story of three women whose lives intersect serendipitously and intertwine to bring about credible character change. The heart does crack open through heartbreak; if you’ve never experienced this kind of loss, then you may not fully understand the profound change that characters go through in the end. Tru is a lesbian player who cannot commit to an intimate relationship or hold a job for longer than a few months. She helps out... | Continue reading article

After 25 years strong, One World Film Festival celebrates its anniversary by continuing to do what it does best – challenging world issues through the power of film. “We decided to keep it smaller this year and focus on celebrating our 25 years,” said festival director, Pixie Cram. This year, the big focus is on honouring the festival itself. Not only will it be shorter than last year, it will also feature less films. To compensate, One World will be throwing a big birthday bash on Thursday night to kick-off... | Continue reading article

Basement 819 trippe fort sur le cinéma cette semaine. Éric est toujours aussi thématique, il se fraye un chemin vers le passé d’Ottawa pour explorer le mythique Capitol Theatre construit en 1920 sur la rue Bank au coin de la rue Queen. À l’époque, ce cinéma pouvait accueillir rien de moins que 2430 spectateurs. Il a été démolli en 1970, un vestige perdu nous direz-vous. L’endroit était même considéré comme l’un des plus beaux “movie palace” en Amérique du Nord. Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Cream sont passés par là… LE... | Continue reading article

So The Little Mermaid turns 25 this week. What better excuse to get out and party like it’s 1989? 1989 isn’t the only reason to party – 5th birthdays are a pretty good reason, too. Auntie Loo’s Treats marks their 5th year with all things vegan, including a taco bar, drag sensations, and local roller derby gals making an appearance at their party on Saturday. We’re chock full of art and film this weekend. The Ottawa International Animation Festival continues all weekend long (The Little Mermaid is just one of... | Continue reading article

Cooler temps, crunchy leaves and greying skies mean only one thing…it’s time for the Ottawa International Animation Festival to descend on the nation’s capital once again! This is one of my favourite things about the fall in Ottawa. There’s nothing like escaping autumn’s chill by stepping into the warm dark of a theatre and settling into the exciting, engaging and sometimes disturbing, imaginations of animators from all over Canada and the world. For those of you unfamiliar with this annual festival, I strongly encourage you to check it out. Even... | Continue reading article
