Our Mandate is based upon the following priorities:
- Maintaining a focus on “artisan” filmmaking.
- Encouraging the participation of artists typically under-represented in mainstream film production.
- Remaining financially accessible to artists.
- Combining a range of artistic disciplines.
- Creating contexts for public screenings and critical discourse.
- Encouraging the participation of artists living and working outside of major centers for film production.
- Providing an opportunity for Ontario based artists to network with international artists and curators.
