About 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.

Emerging artists will collaborate with one of these CFMDC artists: TJ Cuthand, Nadine Valcin, Francisca Duran, Chris Chong Chan Fui and Sharlene Bamboat.

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, or any other format of public in-person or online program open to the public.
Each emerging artist will be paid $2,000 for participating in the collaboration, program creation and delivery. Please note that this collaboration is not a commissioning of new work.
