Green Screen Ottawa


What is Green Screen Ottawa?

Green Screen Ottawa is a climate change film series organized by local Ottawa residents, just like you!

With support from Ecology Ottawa, our goal is to engage our communities on climate action through a series of film screenings held across Ottawa to inspire local action on global issues and show that by working on climate change in our own backyard we can have an impact on one of the world’s most pressing issues.

All screenings are pay-what-you-can (PWYC) and aim to be accessible to everyone!

Movie Night in the DCA Community Garden!

Saturday, August 25 @ 7:30pm – 11:00pm

The Lorax

Come and join us for a picnic and a movie at the Dalhousie Community Association (DCA) Community Garden!

Stop by at 7:30 for a picnic! We will have some fun activities on the site for the whole family such as a photo booth! Not able to bring a picnic? Not to worry! We have invited some food vendors along as well – more details to come soon!

We will be screening The Lorax (2012), a family-friendly, environmentally-themed movie based on a classic Dr. Seuss classic book starting at 8:15 (1h 35m).

Please note that no seating is provided, so please pack a blanket or chairs to set up between the garden plots.

Free and fun for all ages!

This event is put on by the DCA Community Garden, with support from TD Park People grant, and in collaboration with Green Screen Ottawa. There will be the usual #greenscreen613 magic – a photobooth, raffle draw, and opportunities to discuss climate change and how you can get involved to make a difference on environmental issues here in Ottawa.
