Ottawa Through the Lens of Refugees, Immigrants and Newcomers

Immigrants and their children make up nearly half of the population of #Ottawa and our city takes in more newcomers and refugees every day. In the past year and a half alone, Ottawa welcomed more than 2,100 Syrians and several hundred refugees from other nations. 

This summer One World Arts gave immigrants, newcomers, and refugees the tools and training to produce short documentaries that look at Ottawa from their points of view. 

Join us for this special programming and experience the nation's capital through the lens of Ottawa’s immigrant, newcomer and refugee residents at the 28th Annual One World Film Festival - OWFF 2017, co-presented with Refugee613/Réfugié613 and Oxfam Canada. Doors open at noon and the screenings will take place starting at 12:30PM.

This project was made possible with funding from the Ottawa Community Foundation and support from SAW Video and the Ottawa Public Library / Bibliothèque publique d'Ottawa.
