Platform Centre for Photographic + Digital Arts: SHORTS - 2019 PLATFORM MEMBERS' SCREENING, Submission Deadline November 12


SCREENING | 18 November, 7 PM at The Cinematheque
EXHIBITION | 19-23 November in PLATFORM

PLATFORM centre is excited to announce our yearly Members' Screening - SHORTS. Last year's event was a huge success, featuring our members' outrageous films, touching videos, serene animations, disturbing movies and more.

The screening will take place 18 November, 7:00 pm at The Cinematheque (100 Arthur St). This year the films will be displayed in the gallery from 19-23 November during open hours (11 AM - 4 PM). So if you can't make it to the screening, you'll still have a week to see the works.

Submit your work! As long as you're a member (which is easy, see below) we'll show your work, but please keep in mind there are limited spots. Make sure you let us know you'd like to participate. Even if you don't have something, but want to, and plan to make something, let us know! We'll save you a slot.

As a bonus, Video Pool's distribution manager extraordinaire Jennifer Smith will be on hand at the screening to answer questions if you're curious about distribution possibilities for your work. Thanks to Jennifer and Video Pool, a few of the video works screened last year went on to screenings all around the world!

Interested in submitting? Here's what you need to know:

• Work must be 5 minutes or shorter.

• You must be a member. Memberships are $25 ($20 for students or underemployed) and can be purchased online or at the gallery.

• Works must be submitted as .avi or .mov files using dropbox (or something similar). You can also drop by the office with your file.

TO RESERVE A SPOT - contact Colby Richardson at or call 204.942.8183 and let us know what you plan to screen and the approximate length.
