The International Vegan Film Festival (formerly the Ottawa International Vegan Film Festival) is a trailblazing event dedicated to celebrating the vegan ideal: a healthier, compassionate, environmentally friendly lifestyle that can be achieved through the consumption of plants and animal-free alternatives.
As the number of people who call themselves vegan grows exponentially around the world (a 500% increase in the last three years in the US), there is a huge appetite for information and insights into all aspects of vegan life: from the ethics of animal farming to the environmental and health benefits that come with a shift to plant based eating..
The Ottawa International Vegan Film Festival hosted its inaugural Festival on October 14, 2018 at the Mayfair Theatre in Ottawa, Canada, as the only known vegan film festival in the world.
In the years to come, the Festival will hit the road across Canada and around the world. It will not only showcase the talents of extraordinary filmmakers, but serve as a crucial link connecting the global community of vegans and inspiring non vegans to make kinder, and more informed food choices.
The world's premier vegan film festival, the second annual Ottawa International Vegan Film Festival, will take place on October 6, 2019 in the Canadian capital.
