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 films and videos from around the world, taking place at the School of Image Arts, Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada.

For this 6th edition of Moving-Image-Arts we are looking for any artistic and poetic cinematic interpretations of the theme ZEITGEIST. We are particularly interested in short experimental videos that explore our current moment: short works in any genre that convey in an original and creative way the general intellectual, moral, and cultural climate of our times.

The festival will be placed online on March 25th and be available until March 28th, 2021.

For more info:

The Festival committee reserves the right to determine the eligibility of the projects. Works can't be any longer than 10 minutes.

Genres accepted: We except 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.
