Call for Cellphilms

6th International Cellphilm Festival

Making Community_Sm

Making Community: Action, Activism, Advocacy, Art

The organizers of this year’s festival invite submissions that explore how you and your community (a small group of friends, members of a project or class, research colleagues, a global community, etc.) envision making community. You may choose to do this in view of a particular issue (climate change, violence, compassion) or, alternatively, to consider what ‘making community’ might mean in a context where people often struggle to find community.

Submissions should be no more than 90 seconds in length and should be uploaded to YouTube. Along with your YouTube link, we ask that you also submit a 200-300 word write-up that includes the following:

  • The title of your cellphilm and its country of origin
  • The names of all the cellphilm’s co-producers,
  • A short description of how your group went about creating the cellphilm as well as the film’s connection to this year’s theme.

All submissions should be sent to by Monday, October 22, 2018.

Sponsored by the Participatory Cultures Lab and the McGill Art Hive Initiative under the umbrella of the Institute for Human Development and Well-Being

  1. Hello,
    I’m very excited about this project. Right now I am a student of mcgill in the MATL program. I am presently teaching sec. One and two enriched English. I think I would love to get my students involved in this contest. I will see ethics to get the ho ahead as well as my administration and parental approval. Can you respond to me if possible?
