What a weekend we have in store! Pack your sunglasses and your umbrella because spring is on its way.
International Film Festival of Ottawa
Our latest movie picks include the International Film Festival of Ottawa (IFFO) in addition to what’s playing at The ByTowne and Mayfair Theatre.
With daylight savings bringing an extra hour of sunshine to our wakeful time and the promise of light at the end of our workday, we hope this puts a little spring in your step ahead of the official change in seasons next weekend. There is plenty to do with that bit of extra pep this weekend, so without further ado, we give you: the Weekend Roundup.

It has been a long winter and this weekend we celebrate the arrival of spring, sunny skies, and above-zero temperatures. Whether you’re eager to get outside or you’re keen to stay home, we’ve some fun ideas as to how to make the most of your time this weekend.

We’ve come a long way since our Weekend Roundup: social distancing edition was published around this time last year. This weekend, let’s focus on the positives… there’s a lot!
It’s take two for IFFO, the International Film Festival of Ottawa, which could not launch as planned in March 2020.
