THE OTTAWA SPOOKSHOW AND FANTASTIC FILM FESTIVAL is a new film festival in Canada's Capital City
dedicated to the genres of Horror, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and the generally strange!

Now accepting submissions for 2020!

UPDATE- DUE TO THE COVID 19 SITUATION, WE HAVE MADE THE DIFFICULT CHOICE TO DELAY THE FESTIVAL UNTIL 2021. We want to ensure that this event is open to an audience and not an online festival.

    Great selection of films! Thanks so much for including STARGO, my animated sci fi short. Live on Elgin is a geat venue. Bonus of having an online reviewer attend and doing an interview with me onsite, posted on social media. Your support of creatives and filmmaking earns bonus karma points

    Great festival, run at a super cool venue that's intimate, but well located and fun! Brett keeps the fest interesting with trivia breaks and prizes and of course an eclectic selection of films!
