Centretown Movies Outdoor Film Festival: Partner Organizations 2015

Centretown Movies would like to invite Ottawa community organizations to show a film with us in Dundonald Park this summer.
Our festival begins in July and runs until the end of August with a movie every Friday and Saturday night. The Friday night screenings will be hosted by a partner organization. The film played on the Friday evening is selected by the partner organization and all donations raised that night go to that community organization. It is also a great opportunity for your organization to engage with the community and enjoy an evening of outdoor cinema.
The Participant agrees to provide:
  • Responsibility for the film license and the license fee
  • The film in DVD format
  • Security deposit of $100 (by cheque or money order)
  • A volunteer crew (6-8 people) with the following duties: Pre-screening set up and post screening clean up
  • All promotion and publicity for the Friday night movie presentation
  • Acknowledgement of the following on all promotional materials: The logo for Centretown Movies, CCHC, CCOC and the City of Ottawa must be included on all promotional material.

If you are interested in participating as a partner organization for one of our Friday night shows, please email info@centretownmovies.org by May 5, 2015. Please provide the name of your organization and a brief description of how your organization is involved in the community. Please also include if your organization already has a film chosen or some ideas of films you may show and confirm that your organization is able to provide 6-8 volunteers for the night of your film screening (from 6:00pm11:30pm).
CMOFF reserves the right to choose the partner organizations based a series of factors such as relevance to community, movie themes, introducing new organizations, positive past experience, etc.

This Saturday: Gnomeo & Juliet

Join us Saturday August 9th for a Centretown Movies screening of Gnomeo & Juliet.

Though they be from different sides of the fence, Gnomeo (James McAvoy) & Juliet (Emily Blunt), defy their feuding gardens by beginning a passionate but tragic love affair. It’s a classic tale of star-crossed love, with a clever twist. Disney’s 2011 sleeper hit boasts an all star voice cast and music by Elton John, and promises to provide plenty fun for everyone in your family.
