OttawaShortFilms.com is a library of short films created in Ottawa. Use the search function to see what your favourite actor, director, writer or crew member has been up to, or browse the entire selection and discover something new!

We created this site to showcase the talent and creativity of filmmakers in Ottawa. We need your help to make this site as all-inclusive as possible. If you’re a filmmaker in Ottawa, or know one, please submit your film, and help us spread the word.

We want ALL Ottawa short films. Your early work you created while developing your craft, your experimental piece, your web series, your award-winning magnum opus – we want ’em all! If your film isn’t available online, if it’s longer than an hour, or if it’s an old home movie, please do not submit it.

With all that said, go watch some short films. Remember to come back though, as new content is being added all the time!
