Lights, Camera, Ottawa! Let’s Get Animated!

Did you know that Disney’s Mickey Mouse series is created in Ottawa? Or that the city annually hosts one of the largest animation festivals in the world? Ottawa’s reputation as a world-class animation centre is perhaps one of the city’s best kept secrets, but we think it’s time everyone knows about it.

Join Ottawa Film Commissioner Bruce Harvey as he moderates a panel discussion with Ottawa’s leading animation studios. Together, they’ll discuss the types of projects are animated in Ottawa, what they look for in animators, and how they’re coping with the increasing demand for new, original content for platforms like Netflix and Amazon.

This is the third in the Lights, Camera, Ottawa! series.  Join us on Wednesday evenings in November and December!
