Moving-Image-Arts is a collaborative short film festival created by artists/curators Gerda Cammaer, Pierre Tremblay and Devin Shears. This one-hour film festival is a 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 4th edition of Moving-Image-Arts we are looking for any artistic and poetic expressions of MEMORY. We are particularly interested in short experimental videos that envision how memory is not a perfect processor. Memories degrade with the passing of time. The manner information is encoded, stored, and retrieved can all be corrupted. Possible themes include: mnemonics, memory games, computer memory, short-term memory, long-term memory, fading memory, memory overload, memory decay, memory loss, memory failure, collective memory, cultural memory, memory disorders, amnesia and absentmindedness.

The festival will take place on February 28th, 2019, at the School of Image Arts.
