Call for submissions: 2020 edition of NEW TORONTO WORKS


Pleasure Dome welcomes submissions of experimental, time-based media works by Toronto and Greater Toronto Area (GTA) artists for our 25th 2020 edition of NEW TORONTO WORKS.

Pleasure Dome is a year-round, artist-run presentation organization and publisher dedicated to experimental media. Pleasure Dome presents a variety of different genres, styles, and traditions, from those of the historical avant-garde to contemporary post-modern strategies of video/film mixes, alongside other attempts to re-imagine the modernist experimental tradition. We welcome applicants to self identify as we continue to prioritize works by women, visible and invisible minorities, BIPOC, persons with disabilities, and LGBTQ2S+ persons.

We accept single and multi-channel films or expanded cinema projects. We can accommodate most exhibition formats including 35mm, Regular / Super 8, 16mm, VHS, DVD, and Blu-Ray, or QuickTime files. If the form of your project is not well suited to single-channel streaming, please include relevant links to additional materials in the project description or notes.

Works must be produced after Oct. 2018.

To submit your work, please visit our FilmFreeway submission portal:
