Moving-Image-Arts is a collaborative International short film festival created by artists/curators Gerda Cammaer, Devin Shears and Pierre Tremblay.

It is a one-hour juried showcase of short independent films and videos from around the world, taking place at the School of Image Arts, Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada.

For this 7th edition of Moving-Image-Arts we are looking for any artistic and poetic cinematic interpretations of the theme RENEWAL.

We are looking for short experimental videos that explore the theme of renewal - the chance of transformation into something new under new circumstances, or an instance of resuming an activity or state after an interruption. We invite short works in any genre that convey renewal as transformation, restoration, rejuvenation, revitalisation, regeneration, replacement, resumption, or continuation. Just as renewal requires opening yourself up to new ways of thinking and feeling, we are particularly looking for works that explore this theme in an original and creative way.

The Festival Committee reserves the right to determine the eligibility of the projects.
Films and videos can be 10 minutes maximum (preferably shorter) and need to be completed after January 1, 2020.

We accept short films of any genre, but preference is given to experimental films and art videos. Work produced for a commercial purpose or within a commercial context is not eligible. Student films are welcome.

For more information, contact: movingimagearts@ryerson.ca

There is a submission fee of $1.00, but students and friends of the festival can apply for a code to be exempt from paying the fee by writing to movingimagearts@ryerson.ca

We are looking for independent short video that explore RENEWAL in any form or shape.

Films and videos need to be 10 minutes maximum, preferably shorter, and completed after January 1, 2020.
