Our Mandate

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.
