- A.C.T. Ottawa
A.C.T. Ottawa (Acting for Cinema and Television), is a local acting school, that posts a list of auditions happening in the Ottawa area. You might be surprised at the number of productions looking for help: there’s usually at least one audition each week in the region. But don’t get excited about a Hollywood-sized paycheque — most of the parts pay very little or nothing at all.

- Canadian Film Institute
- Centretown Movies Outdoor Film Fest
Do you remember drive-in theatres? This festival is the next best thing — but without the steamy windshields. Hundreds of people bring their lawn chairs and blankets down to Dundonald Park (near Somerset & Kent/Lyon) to see some great films in the great outdoors. Admission is pay-what-you-can.
