Governor General’s Awards in Visual and Media Arts

Video Production

Each September since 2013, the Canada Council for the Arts and the Independent Media Arts Alliance have put out a call to professional Canadian directors to create video portraits of the award winners.

The response from the media arts community is enthusiastic. Imagine the opportunity to create a short film about a key figure in the visual or media arts, with the support of a local production centre – with full creative control over your work.

 

Submit a proposal to create a video portrait for a 2018 GGArts winner!

Deadline: Monday, October 2, 2017
Contact: Lana Crossman, 1.800.263.5588 ext. 4179
