The Ottawa Canadian Film Festival (OCanFilmFest) [1] is an Ottawa-based, cultural, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to recognize, promote and celebrate the art of cinema by showcasing Canadian films and filmmakers. Publicly attended film festival screenings were held in 2017 and 2018. The festival moved to Arts Court in Ottawa in 2018. The documentary short film Secret War[2] kicked off a new series of short film screenings called "OCanFilmFest Presents" which take place during the year, leading up to the next festival screenings in Ottawa in November 2019.
