This week in the Future of Ottawa series, we’re looking at film, with a focus on indie cinemas in this post. Bruce White is an alumnus of CKCU-FM, where he learned that everyone’s interests are equally interesting. He has lived in Ottawa for 48 years.
“Don’t worry, the ByTowne will be back,” says owner Bruce White.
We’re still enjoying the pretty part of winter, and slowing down a little in the process
Heddy Honigmann’s 2018 film Buddy, which played at Wakefield Doc Fest, is screening again at The ByTowne Cinema this month.
Ottawa will be the stage where you can enjoy the world’s most cutting-edge, thoughtful, funny and provocative animation films.
The screening marks the first “Stories” themed event from Women of Architecture!, a local community organization whose goal is to promote the achievements of Women contributing to the built environment in the National Capital Region.
Whether it comes in like a lion or a lamb, March is finally here!
After a short week, we are fortunate enough to have arrived at another wonderful weekend in this great city. There are plenty of exciting events to enjoy and we are here to tell you all about them!
There were 100 films selected from a record-setting 2,469 entries.
For decades, the Ottawa International Animation Festival has attracted film and animation buffs, art lovers and filmmakers from around the globe. You won’t want to miss this year’s exciting line-up of screenings, workshops, panels and parties.
“The Egyptian Jon Stewart” spoke to Apt613 about Al Bernameg – the most popular political satire show in the Middle East – and how satire can be used as a tool to enact change.
This week on the show, we’re talking with political cartoonist and University of Ottawa professor Omid Milani. We talk about the new documentary Tickling Giants (playing June 7th at the ByTowne Cinema, a presentation of One World Film Festival) and about the importance of satire in defending freedoms.
Known as the “Egyptian Jon Stewart,” Bassem Youssef started his own Daily Show-style YouTube show, which he filmed from his basement laundry room. It became very popular, very quickly. This Wednesday June 7, ByTowne Cinema will screen Tickling Giants, a documentary film about Al Bernameg – the most popular political satire show in the Middle East.
Happy weekend, Ottawa. Once again, the city has plenty on offer as we cruise to the end of May.
