FALL 2015 - CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Cinema Politica is currently seeking submissions of independent documentary works for our Fall 2015 Program. The deadline is August 1, 2015.

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 1 (for the Fall Program) and December 1 (for the Winter Program). Our screening license structure depends on how many times a film screens in our network and is negotiated after a film has been selected.

Cinema Politica specializes in showcasing political non-fiction film and video of all lengths that tackle important social, political, cultural and ecological issues (some past examples can be seen in the image above - our poster wall at CP HQ in Montreal). We embrace documentaries that are political on a variety of levels, including subject matter, intention, production circumstances, community affiliations, activist involvement, historical narrative, relationships to privilege and power, narrational tactics, mode of address, and more. We take our tagline "Screening Truth to Power" to heart, and as such we program original works that showcase under-represented stories of struggle, oppression, resistance and transformation.

How to Submit Your Film:

For online previews, please send a link and password to programming [at] cinemapolitica [dot] org (programming AT cinemapolitica DOT org) with "SUBMISSION" in the subject heading. If you would prefer to submit a DVD/Blu-Ray instead, please contact us at the same email address.

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. All submissions must be in English or French, or provide English or French subtitles if language is essential to the production. If you have any other questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us at: programming [at] cinemapolitica [dot] org (programming AT cinemapolitica DOT org).

We look forward to previewing your work!
