Call for Artists Description: 

North Van Arts is a community arts council whose mandate is to enable emerging and professional artists in all disciplines and to bridge cultures and build strong and healthy communities through the arts. We are a vibrant and dynamic organization of over 540 members with a proud history of serving the citizens of the North Shore and artists throughout Metro Vancouver and beyond. 

The North Van Arts International Film Series is presented by North Van Arts in cooperation with the Toronto International Film Festival. Throughout the year a series of TIFF selections are screened at Cineplex Odeon Park & Tilford Cinemas for special one-night-only viewings. Established in 2003, the North Van Arts International Film Series acts as a platform for unique cinematic experiences, spotlighting quality Canadian, independent, and foreign films.


North Van Arts invites Capilano University film students and recent graduates to submit completed short works (maximum 15 minutes) for inclusion in the 2019-20 film series. Students are asked to attend the screening if selected, and to participate in a brief public talk preceding the short and TIFF feature screenings. A DCP version of the film on an external hard drive or USB will be required for the theatre screening. There is no artist fee for participating. North Van Arts will publicize the short films through print and digital media.

Screenings take place Wednesdays at 7pm, between October 2, 2019, and May 27, 2020.
