Filmmakers have less than four weeks to submit their film for consideration in the Ottawa International Vegan Film Festival.

The festival, which will take place on October 14 2018, aims to showcase short and feature-length films with a vegan subject matter from filmmakers around the world.

It is accepting vegan-themed films in four categories from filmmakers around the world – both short and full-length features, fiction and documentary. The categories are Health and Nutrition, Environmental Protection, Animal Advocacy, and Lifestyle.

Support

Shawn Stratton, festival founder, says he wants to support vegan filmmakers by providing an avenue to show their films to new audiences and provide awards to recognize them for their projects.

He told Plant Based News: “The long-term vision for the festival is to gather a ‘best of the best’ compilation of the videos submitted and take it on tour around the world. We are also interested in adding a vegan book festival in the coming years.

“Right now, the festival is a one-day event, but as it grows we would like to see it expand to a weekend and then a week with multiple screening rooms, seminars, and expert speakers from the plant-based community.”

The festival’s mission is to: “Be the leading film festival for vegan films that inspire people to choose a healthier, more environmentally friendly and compassionate lifestyle through the consumption of plants and animal-free alternatives.”
