Thank You, Ottawa!


The ByTowne is now closed.

It's possible that, after the pandemic has been brought under control,
new management will take over the space and offer big-screen wonderfulness again.

The building is being maintained, with all its facilities and equipment intact,
in preparation for that hoped-for day.

City Dreamers

Presented in cooperation with Women Of Architecture! and The Ontario Association of Landscape Architects. Screening will be followed by a panel discussion.

Phyllis Lambert, Blanche Lemco van Ginkel, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander, Denise Scott Brown: Four trailblazers who became accustomed to being the only woman in the room. Each has an extensive list of accomplishments in architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture dating back 60+ years. Each has taught, mentored and inspired generations of professionals.

Poster for the documentary City Dreamers, profiling four female architectsHow have they envisioned our cities? Through original interviews, archival material and stunning cinematography, filmmaker Joseph Hillel uncovers how each of these strong, independent thinkers has shaped the cities in which we live and work. As the world becomes increasingly urbanized, the insights of these forward-looking women who have built social and environmental values into their work seem more relevant now than ever.
