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.

Fall 2019 semester’s showings unless otherwise specified, are presently scheduled to be held in:

Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ottawa. room FSS-7035


Watch the webpage (cinemaacademica.ca) or join the email list for information on upcoming events. We are planning further showings this fall on November 2, 16, and 30 in the same room.


(The Faculty of Social Sciences is located at 120 University Private (in between Vanier Hall and the Residential Complex).  If you stand in front of the Lamoureux Building, you can see the FSS tower behind the large tent-like structure.  FSS-7035 is on the first floor.)

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.
