Weekend roundup + giveaway to Inside Out Film Fest

By Karen Diepeveen on October 17, 2013



Music, movies, and specialized markets – we’ve got it all this weekend in Ottawa.

Film buffs have a lot to choose from: a documentary on the secret world of modular synthesizers in Ottawa, home movies (you can even bring your own), and Nosferatu with the traditional live accompaniment. There’s also the Inside Out Film Festival (plus a dance party) – and we’re giving away 2 pairs of tickets for Blue is the Warmest Color, playing at the festival Sunday at 8pm. Just leave a comment below with your favourite movie (LGBT or otherwise) before Friday noon – the winner will be selected at random from the entries.

In flea markets, there’s one dedicated to fabric and one dedicated to geeks, both guaranteed to have great treasures.

In music shows, Bravestation and X Ambassadors are in town with some apocalyptic pop on Friday night. Autumns Cannon are back after playing at Bluesfest this year, and Timekode is back for another edition. Globular is coming to Club SAW on Friday, while Suuns is at Zaphods. Alice Russell is here from the UK to play a show alongside the Souljazz Orchestra and DJ Zattar, and classical fans can catch the Dragon’s Tea Trio on Saturday evening. Sunday wraps up with SoulCracker, a nine-piece soul band, down at Babylon.

ARTrepreneur is back for a third year, a one-day affair dedicated to helping artists succeed in business. There’s also a vernissage for Town and Country at Cube Gallery, and works curated by Gillian King at La Petite Mort.

Poetry chapbooks will be in abundance, along with their authors, at the Apt. 9 Press event at Raw Sugar Friday night. Local author Christian McPherson will be launching his new novel, Cube Squared, at Patty’s Pub on Sunday afternoon.

Love your beer, and your fall weather? The Brewery Market brings you both on Sunday afternoon.
