A Bittersweet Taste


A Bittersweet Taste - Damien Fannon

A Bittersweet Taste tells the story of an Ice-cream man, Adam Greely, and his struggle to move on after the loss of his wife.

Created in 2004 as a grass roots independent filmmakers’ festival in Ottawa, DIGI60 provides opportunities for new or emerging filmmakers by offering a platform to showcase their work. The Festival has expanded over the years to include documentaries, community collaborations with post-secondary schools, and skills/business workshops through independent film and video partnerships. DIGI60 values artistic achievement and excellence, and provides the foundation for creating and sustaining a vibrant and supportive filmmaking community.
Four days of networking, screenings and professional development, the Digi60 Filmmakers' Festival is excited to present a jam packed schedule celebrating emerging filmmakers, their films and members of the independent filmmaking industry.

In 2016 Best Film was awarded to Damien Fannon for HOMESICK, about a man who struggles with being away from home – problematic with his sister’s wedding looming in the future. HOMESICK actors Eoghan Flynn and Nicole McIvor also won for Best Ensemble Cast.
