The Ottawa Film Office is delighted to announce that its Film, Television, and Animation Career Fair is coming back to Lansdowne Park on May 10, 2023! Join us in the historic Horticulture Building to meet local production companies, animation studios, and other industry professionals to learn about current and future job opportunities and what they look for in new hires. You’ll also be able to chat with post-secondary institutions, associations, unions and guilds about the industry programs, resources, and training they offer.
Ottawa’s live-action and animation sectors have grown significantly over the past few years, providing high-value and rewarding jobs and contributing over $130 million to the local economy in 2022. Don’t miss this chance to discover how you can be involved in this fast-paced and exciting industry!
This free event is geared to anyone interested in exploring a career in film and television, including:
– Secondary and post-secondary students, recent grads;
– Current crew members looking for new opportunities;
– Professionals working in a different industry and interested in transitioning to an exciting new career in Ottawa’s growing film and television industry.
1Department Entertainment Services, Smyth Casting, DGC Ontario, Edwards Creative Law, and the Digital Arts Resource Centre are just a few of the companies attendees can meet. A full list of participating companies and their recruiting needs will be available in early April.
Please contact us at [email protected] before April 7 if you’re an Ottawa-based film/TV/animation company interested in exhibiting.
