Governor General’s Awards in Visual and Media Arts

Video Production

GGArts Videos: Art About Art

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.

Follow us on Twitter or Facebook for news on the next call, planned for September 2018.
