2021 FILM SUBMISSIONS NOW OPEN. SUBMIT YOUR FILM ›
Our favourite adventure films come from our own backyard, and we want to see more. Introducing The OAFF Groundbreaker Award, a platform for Ottawa youth and their stories. Filmmakers ages 30 and under from the Ottawa region are encouraged to submit (no professional experience is necessary). We’ve designed this award to expand outward, seeking submission from the Ottawa region and areas like Kitigan Zibi, Maniwaki, and the Ottawa Valley.
The Groundbreaker Award includes a $1000 prize, free entry to the festival, a featured spot, and mentoring session from the OAFF team.
