The Images Festival is now accepting FILM/VIDEO and GUEST CURATOR submissions for consideration for the 22nd Festival which runs April 2-11, 2009 in Toronto.
About the Images Festival:
The Images Festival is the largest festival in North America for experimental and independent media, showcasing the innovative edge of international contemporary media art both on and off the screen. From Super-8 and hand-tinted celluloid to the latest video art, Images has presented thousands of films and media based projects since 1988. Toronto's 2nd oldest film festival also presents groundbreaking live performances and media art installations by many renowned Canadian and international artists. We go out of our way and over the edge to provide Toronto with an annual extravaganza of image making. Attended by more than 30,000 people each year, the Images Festival is a critical forum for the independent media arts in Canada and around the world. We look forward to learning about your projects!
The kinds of projects we present:
For 21 years, the Images Festival has exhibited and encouraged the work of artists producing film and video outside of mainstream commercial production, distribution systems and aesthetic conventions. Images is committed to an expanded concept of film and video practice: alongside its film and video screenings, the festival embraces a wide variety of practices, including performances, installations and new media. In addition to the international competition programs drawn from submissions to the festival, Images includes artists' retrospectives, national and regional cinema spotlights, and special curated programs.
