The Oakville Film Festival

Each year in June, Oakville hosts its only Independent Film Festival! In past years, this film festival has been spread across three jam-packed days. Fortunately, this year, they have expanded to include a whole week of film viewing beginning on June 23rd. To adhere to safety restrictions — and bring viewers the comfort of watching new movies in their own homes — this year’s film festival will be completely digital!


Originally a play, CHILD-ish is a performance based on the pure — and brutally honest words of love, life, and the word spoken by children and performed by adults. The cast puts a unique and hilarious take on a child’s perspective of the world, drawn from interviews of over 40 children. This special web-series launch is a must-see! Join the free virtual launch event on June 22nd to watch all 4 episodes and meet the people who made them.
