OFFA 2022 The Oakville Festivals of Film and Art

Fans of movies can visit the 9th annual Oakville Festivals of Film & Art (OFFA) from June 22 to 28, 2022 which also includes a number of Gala events. This year the independent film festival is supporting Ukraine with a Gala evening featuring Chantal Kreviazuk and ticket sales are now live.

Created in 2014, OFFA is an annual community-oriented festival occurring in June showing feature films, shorts and documentaries while providing amazing access to the producers, directors and actors - every screening introduces an interactive component to the experience. There will be Q&A sessions after each screening. 

The organizers highlight serious social issues and will present programming to raise awareness of the issue such as the ongoing conflict in Eastern Europe. From OFFA: "An Evening to Celebrate Ukrainian Arts and Culture featuring: Chantal Kreviazuk in support of the Ukrainian World Foundation. As the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues, Oakville Festivals of Film and Art, the Ukrainian World Foundation, Zirkova Vodka, and Chantal Kreviazuk, are doing their part to support relief efforts for our friends in Ukraine." This Gala will take place at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts on Saturday, June 25.

This year is special since the return to live events after COVID-19 precautions will see the festival being a hybrid event with live events and screenings, hybrid screenings and some virtual only events. 2022 will have over 100 films presented over 7 days made up of regional premieres, independent films along with short films and documentaries. In addition to the Ukrainian Gala there will be two other galas; the Opening Night Gala on Thursday, June 23 and the Friday evening Gala Canadian Premier on the 24th.
