FREE Admission

Every year, we team up with ACAD to present a free screening of the best of the Ottawa International Animation Festival. If you've never been to OIAF, it's one of the world's biggest and best festivals of independent animation, and this screening will show off a selection of the most exciting, experimental, odd & artistic short films out there. Plus, it's totally free! Don't miss out.

The Best of Ottawa 2016 is a collection of jury awarded short films and fan favorites from the 40th anniversary edition of the Ottawa International Animation Festival, which took place in September 2016.

This year's highlights include the late-night driving misadventure, Nighthawk, The Absence of Eddy Table, a ravenous romance designed by Nickelodeon's Dave Cooper, Begone Dull Care 2015, an 8-bit shot-for-shot adaptation of legendary animator Norman McLaren's 1949 film by almost the same name, and Fired on Mars, the tale of a poor schmuck at the end of his luck a million miles from home.
