Open for submissions

Mirror Mountain is now accepting film submissions of all kinds for our next festival, which will be held July 26th – 27th 2019. Head over to our submissions page for more info!


Next festival dates

Special announcement!

After conducting a lot of careful research into Ottawa’s bustling calendar of festivals and cultural events, we’ve decided that moving away from our traditional spot in early December will be in the best interest of the festival. Mirror Mountain will be held in late July moving forwards.

Because there isn’t enough preparation time between now and this July to make this happen for 2018, we’ve therefore decided to delay the next edition of Mirror Mountain until July 26th & 27th, 2019.

This gives us a longer lead time to prepare, which will help us make the next festival even more great and special! We look forward to celebrating the best in independent cinema with you all in 2019. Watch this space for more announcements coming up soon, including opening dates for film submissions!
