Submit a Film

 

DEADLINES for film and video submissions to the Cinema Politica Network are twice a year:

August 1 for the Fall Program (September - December) and

December 1 for the Winter Program (January - April).

Cinema Politica is a year-round, ongoing screening series of independent political film and video at several locations across Canada and abroad. We focus on showcasing Canadian documentaries, but screen innovative works from all over the world.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

• Works must be independently produced, with the filmmaker retaining complete editorial control.
• Works must be in English or French, or with English or French subtitling if language is essential to the production
• Works may be from any genre including fiction, docudrama, documentary, hybrids, etc
• Works must be submitted in one of three length categories: 0-15min, 15-30, and 30+min

Cinema Politica supports independent artists and distributors. For works we program, we pay Public Performance License fees depending on the production's length and whether it will be screened once or throughout our Network, which brings your film to campus audiences across Canada reaching a potential market of over 1.5 million students at over 50 locations. For our international locals in Asia, Australia, USA, and Europe, licensing is on a case-by-case basis. Please note that there is no charge to submit your film and that shipping and handling must be paid by the shipper.
