Call for Emerging Artists: CFMDC Collaborative Public Program
Call for emerging artists!
The Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre (CFMDC) seeks applications from self-identifying emerging artists, in any medium, to take part in a collaborative project drawing from or responding to CFMDC’s collection of moving image and film. Successful applicants will be paired with an established artist from CFMDC’s membership to collaborate in the creation and delivery of a public program. The collaboration can happen online or in person, depending on the location of the artists.
Artist pairs will have 3 months to collaborate and share skills, and another 3 months to develop a public program together that could be delivered at CFMDC in Toronto, at partner gallery Eyelevel Gallery in Halifax, online, or elsewhere.
A public program can be:
- a screening (online, on site, off site)
- a mediated intervention
- a workshop
- an artist talk or panel
- a presentation
- any other format of in-person or online program open to the public
- September 2022 – December 2022: Artist collaboration and skill sharing
- January – March 2023: Developing a public program
- sometime between March – May 2023: Public program delivery
Artist pairs are expected to meet regularly between September 2022 and March 2023, and to attend check-in meetings with CFMDC to coordinate the creation and delivery of a public program.
Each emerging artist will be paid $2000 for participating in the collaboration, program creation and delivery. Please note that this collaboration is not a commissioning of new work.
