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 year's edition (2018) we are specifically looking for short films that explore the theme of EXPERIMENTAL LANDSCAPES, and that treat this theme in an original and imaginative way.
We are looking for various artistic expressions or imaginations of landscape in a wide variety of film genres, from observational video and drone images, to experimental film, animation, microdocs, fiction, abstract video art or mobile cinema. Possible sub themes include, but are not limited to: new geographies, critical topography, ecocinema, globalization, geographical mapping, and information/navigation systems.
For the first time we are expanding the call for works to Multi screen and split-screen video installations and media such as AR/VR and works in 3D. Selected works from this new media category will be exhibited during the week of the festival in the Ryerson Image Factory.
The Festival will take place at the School of Image Arts, Ryerson University.
