Ottawa filmmaker Pascal Aka emailed me last week with some great news: EVOL, a movie that he wrote, directed and starred in, is up for five nominations at a California film festival. The film gets its world premiere on Monday at the Action On Film Festival.
Other local crew on the movie includes co-producer and actor André Givogue, lead actor and stunt performer Dennis Lafond, and Daniel Lavigne who acts and does stunts in the movie.
Best of all, the entire movie was filmed here in Ottawa. Check out the trailer and see if you can name all of the Ottawa locations used in the film.
