Established in 1987 and dedicated to the moving image in all its forms, the Images Festival is the longest running and most influential integrated media arts festival in Canada. Our ON SCREEN program is an annual survey of contemporary artist’s film and video presented in a cinema context.

We are interested in screening films and videos, in any category, that have an inventive, aesthetically unconventional approach in terms of form, content, story and structure. We look for the inspired and the critical, the confounding and the revelatory, the scurrilous and the eccentric, and recognize that these may come in many kinds of packages.

All film and video submissions must be available in one of the following exhibition formats: 35mm film or 16mm film with optical sound; Super 8 or 8mm film; Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) digital file. We do not screen work on DVD or from tape sources. If you absolutely cannot supply your work as a digital file, we can work something out. Works in languages other than English must be subtitled for exhibition.

To submit, please visit the Images Festival website.
