The Independent Filmmakers Co-operative of Ottawa Inc. (IFCO) will be hosting a one-time screening of new Super 8mm and 16mm short films as part of “CELLULOID DREAMZ” – their annual filmmakers’ showcase.
“CELLULOID DREAMZ” brings to the screen all of the hard work, effort and dreams that go into making a film. Local filmmakers, who by the way are generally representative of ‘every person’ within the broader Ottawa community, set aside their note books/ suits, studies, day to day drudgery etcetera, to embrace their inner filmmaker because of their love of storytelling. Through their passion and need to create, these writers, and filmmakers take us on an exploration of love and relationships; ghostly encounters; drunken buffoonery; celebrations of Canada, and hard life choices. The hope of these films is to encourage viewers to find their own unique path towards filmmaking/storytelling.
Proceeds from the screening benefit various IFCO activities, which are designed to encourage and support the ongoing development of especially local filmmaking talent.
After the screening, you’ll have a great opportunity to mix and mingle with some of the filmmakers at the after-party at Oz Kafe – located at (#10 York Street). Oz Kafe offers an exquisite menu with a varied selection, so there’ll definitely be some delicious eats and bites.
