2012 Regent Park Film Festival Call For Submissions

Regent Park Film Festival (RPFF) is Toronto's ONLY free-of-charge film festival dedicated to bringing the finest multicultural works relevant to the communities living in Regent Park, the oldest and largest low income housing in Canada; an area populated predominantly by new immigrants and Aboriginal Peoples. We showcase independent films of all length and genres, with topics pertinent to the various Regent Park communities such as urbanization, community activism, immigrant experiences, the celebration of difference/ solidarity, inner city issues, cultural identity, and multicultural relationships.

Regent Park residents are encouraged to create media works through our free professional training workshops or on their own, and engage in debates through our panel discussions. Annually, films made by Regent Park residents are highlighted in Community Stories, our youth media art program that encourages self-representation and seeks to engage young filmmakers in dialogue with guest filmmakers from other parts of the world. All our activities are free-of-charge and we provide free childcare and pay artist fees.

Deadline: Friday May 4, 2012 (NO ENTRY FEE) Post-dated.
