Lights! Camera! Action! Outdoor movies in Ottawa


I recently got the chance to attend an event hosted by the Ottawa International Writer's Festival, which  resulted in me now keeping my ear to the ground for future events from this fest.

Luckily I didn't have to wait very long! On Wednesday July 17th Outside of City Hall, the Writers Festival is presenting " Music and Film Under the Stars: Canadian Short Films with new scores by Mike Dubue. 
This is a free event and includes a BBQ and a beverage! What better way to spend a summer evening? 

And if you are unavailable to attend but would still like to catch a flick in the great outdoors? Well look no further because there are other great opportunities such as:
