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.

El Autor

(The Motive)

Part of the SPANISH FILM FESTIVAL 2018, presented by the Embassy of Spain

Álvaro dreams of being a writer, a true artist, not a hack like his bestselling author wife, Amanda. When he catches her cheating, Álvaro decides to leave Amanda and quit his job so that he can write full-time.

Poster for the meta comedy El Autor (The Motive)But the blank page staring at him from his desk in his new apartment is daunting. To ‘write what he knows’, Álvaro begins to insinuate himself into the lives of his interesting and eccentric neighbours. As he pulls strings and instigates drama in the lives of those in his building, Álvaro may become the butt of his own joke.

– Diana Sanchez, Toronto International Film Festival
