▫️The virtual edition of the Ottawa International Animation Festival gets underway tomorrow, Wednesday September 23rd and runs until Sunday October 4th. North America’s largest animation festival, this year the OIAF is extending its run to 10 days of shorts, features, talks, and virtual parties.
Individual tickets for a short film, feature film or talk can be purchased at $9.00 each, and festival passes, including the Animapass, which gets you into everything - all screenings and talks - for $60, are available until 9pm tonight.
▫️The Company of Fools theatre troupe is taking its “Love From Afar” Window tour to select Ottawa seniors’ facilities until September 26th. Residents and staff will be able to watch the show, which is billed as a “Shakespeare mashup”, through the window, and sound will be broadcast via FM radio. The troupe is also producing an animated version of the show, with voiceovers and original score, to be available through the Ottawa Public Library in October.
