Events Description

The Ottawa Vegan Film Festival is a trailblazing event dedicated to celebrating the vegan ideal: a healthier, compassionate, environmentally friendly lifestyle that can be achieved through the consumption of plants and animal-free alternatives.
As the number of people who call themselves vegan grows exponentially around the world (a 500% increase in the last three years in the US), there is a huge appetite for information and insights into all aspects of vegan life: from the ethics of animal farming to the environmental and health benefits that come with a shift to plant based eating.

In 2019 the Festival received 40 film submissions, up from 28 last year. The films that have been selected have been submitted from 14 countries around the world. 60% of the films are from female directors.
