Call for Submissions: Winter 2013

Cinema Politica, the largest campus and community-based documentary screening network in the world, is currently seeking submissions of independent documentary works for our Winter 2013 deadline of December 15th, 2013.

Cinema Politica is a non-competitive continuous documentary screening series with locations throughout Canada and abroad. We are a non-profit media arts organization committed to connecting audiences on campuses and communities to independent political and social issue non-fiction cinema. Most of our screening activity occurs during the academic year with two annual submission deadlines: August 15 (for the Fall Program) and December 15 (for the Winter Program). Our screening licensing payments depend on how many times a film screens in our network.

Cinema Politica continues our special sidebar program on "The Commons," where we showcase documentary film and video that explore issues around the environment, eco-activism, land, public space, austerity and stewardship. We are also committed to programming works by women, and are seeking submissions from female artists for all upcoming programming.

There is no cost to submit your work to Cinema Politica and we are not responsible for lost or stolen items, nor are we responsible for returning submitted works.

Cinema Politica specializes in showcasing political non-fiction film and video of all lengths that tackle important social, political, cultural and ecological issues. We take our tagline "Screening Truth to Power" very seriously and program original works that look at under-represented stories of struggle, oppression, resistance and transformation.
