Governor General’s Awards in Visual and Media Arts

Call for proposal - 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. The Canada Council gives the directors full creative control over their work.

Submit a proposal to create a video portrait of a 2019 GGArts winner!
Deadline: Monday, September 24, 2018
Contact: Sylvain Laporte, 1-800-263-5588 ext. 5270
