Working with the OIAF

“Working at the Ottawa International Animation Festival through the Job Creation Program was one of the best decisions I ever made. It was without a doubt, the most fun I have ever had at work. It challenged me and was hard work, but simply put, it was the best work experience I have ever had. The staff at OIAF are like family and I still miss working there. but I was fortunate enough that the experience I gained there lead to a career change and a wonderful job – a job that I would not have secured if I had not joined this program. If you are seeking work, looking to switch careers or simply looking to challenge yourself or would love to have fun at work OIAF is for you.”
