Call for Submissions: Toronto Queer Film Festival Student Program

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 - 12:00pm

TQFF is showcasing student work again this fall!

Who can submit? Any student living in Toronto/GTA
What exactly? We are seeking film + video work under 20 minutes in length. Preference for work created in or after 2017.

Since 2016, the Toronto Queer Film Festival has showcased the film and video art of queer and trans creators. We celebrate vigour, resistance, and defiance over nationalism and assimilation. We elevate Indigiqueer/Trans/2 Spirit filmmakers and filmmakers of colour where others erase or tokenize.

This year, we celebrate the anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall riots with our festival theme ‘Stonewall 50.’ As ever, TQFF’s mandate remains to decolonize queer and trans art histories and practices. This year, we especially seek projects that embody the spirit of the legacy of the Stonewall riots against police violence and/or center a commitment to decolonizing queer and trans liberation histories and art. We take the opportunity of the 50th anniversary of Stonewall to not only reflect on where we have been, but how we want to imagine queer and trans liberation for the next 50 years.

How do we remember Stonewall, the site of such a fundamentally impolite and uncompromising defiance? More importantly, to whom does Stonewall belong? The Stonewall uprisings were led by trans and gender non-conforming people of colour. Yet most mainstream portrayals erase these very same people. How can we reclaim spaces and art lost to homonormativity? How do we remember the legacy of Stonewall outside of “progress” narratives? Things look very different now than they did a half-century ago, but what does progress mean? Is it a straight line or a pendulum? If things get “better,” do they get better for everyone?

Stonewall is often discussed as “the beginning” of the global movement for LGBTQ+ rights, but this is a US-centric point of view. What, if anything, does Stonewall mean in a global context? We want to hear about queer and trans liberation struggles from all around the world!

This is an artist-run festival. At TQFF, we commit to ethical treatment of artists in two concrete ways: we do not charge submission fees, and pay all artists who have their films selected screening fees according to IMAA & CARFAC standard rates.

TQFF is generously funded by the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Canada Council for the Arts.

Beyond Borders is a curated exhibition of OCAD University student work from the Faculties of Art and Design. These moving and still images all defy or define boundaries, borders, margins, and edges. A lens inherently serves to create a border between artist and subject. Simultaneously, it provides a platform to describe and/or transcend and transgress physical, societal, political, personal, historical, cultural, racial, gendered constructions. While some choose to bridge borders, others may examine their defined edges. The still and moving images in this exhibition flirt with thresholds of the borders we so often struggle to define.

The Artist Project Contemporary Art Fair and The Centre for Emerging Artists and Designers are excited to announce the return of the Artist Project Career Launcher for an upper year student or recent graduate of the Integrated Media or Sculpture/Installation programs. 

Students and recent alumni are invited to apply for this paid opportunity which provides a professional venue and large public audience for their work.

The Show Director will select a successful applicant and The Centre for Emerging Artists and Designers will provide a $2,000 production grant towards the realization of this outstanding opportunity.
