Photos from Saturday’s Ottawa International Film Festival
It was a busy Saturday for the Ottawa International Film Festival.
The day started off with attending the “Slate of Comedic Shorts”.
- Polar Bear Love
- A Sensitive Subject
- Above the Knee – (This film is part of Canada’s top ten shorts, courtesy of TIFF. 12 minutes)
- The Diner
A short I can never stop watching.
It was nice to see it in a theatre setting and still funny as ever.
A funny short about a guy who wears a skirt to work.
I wasn’t sure if this was a Ottawa short until later in the short where the actress said “Rideau Centre”.
A funny short and like how they censored the profanity.
After that went to the Documentaries.
I only watched
- Caged Innocents
- This Is My Witness
Both documentaries were very powerful, thought provoking, moving and made you aware that bad things happens in other countries.
Later in the evening, I went for the double screening for Momento and Donnie Darko.
Aaron Ryder who was the executive producer was in attendance for this.
The Q&A session was very good and at least no one ask any stupid question.
I finally got to see both films.
Momento was good.
I really love Donnie Darko, just love the soundtrack from the film. Mostly the ending with the cover of Tears For Fear’s Mad World covered by Gary Jules which was a Christmas #1 in the UK.
