About us

Cinema Academica is hosted at the University of Ottawa. We show a weekly film series meant to inspire activism and open discussion.


Cinema Academica hosts film screenings during the academic year at the University of Ottawa on various social, political and economic issues in order to increase social consciousness and encourage activism in the community. All films are completely free of charge. All films are followed by discussion.

The winter 2018 semesters’ showings, from Jan 13th to April 7th, unless otherwise specified, are presently scheduled to be held in:

Lamoureux Hall, University of Ottawa. room 339

(145 Jean-Jacques Lussier Private, Ottawa, ON, Canada)

Parking: There is limited metered parking on campus on Séraphin-Marion (the continuation of Wilbrod west of Cumberland) and in the adjacent lot east of Tabaret Hall, and also on Louis Pasteur, between MacDonald Hall and Gendron Hall. The meters are enforced 24/7. There is also a pay-and-display lot beside Simard Hall. The best bet is on nearby streets in Sandy Hill, e.g., Henderson, where there are signs for 2 or 3 hour parking up to 7:00 p.m., unrestricted after 7:00.
