Lights, Camera, Ottawa! So, You Want to be in the Movies?

Hundreds of locals work in Ottawa’s film and television industry on a range of productions, from Canadian TV series to multimillion-dollar feature films – and of course, the beloved Hallmark Christmas movies. The types of jobs are varied and can appeal to those with or without knowledge of the industry, such as production assistants, accountants, carpenters and composers to directors, actors, and office staff. As the film industry continues to grow in Ottawa, so too does the demand for cast and crew. 

Join us for an engaging panel discussion, moderated by Ottawa Film Commissioner Bruce Harvey, that will explore what it takes to break into the film industry, how productions are coping with COVID-19 restrictions, and how businesses and residents can become involved in the action.

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