2011 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 in their original languages and subtitled in English, with topics pertinent to the various Regent Park communities such as urbanization, community activism, immigrant experiences, inner city issues, cultural identity and multicultural relationships. In addition, each year we program films for Grade 1-8 addressing themes of difference, racial diversity, bullying, gender identity, poverty, health, and other issues relevant to youth. Regent Park residents are encouraged to create media works, through our free professional training workshops, and engage in debates through our panel discussions. Annually, films made by Regent Park residents are highlighted in our Family Program and in our Community Stories: Youth Media Art Program on Opening Night, supporting self-representation and engaging dialogue with guest youth filmmakers from other parts of the World. This year, we are putting particular emphasis on fictional feature and short length films from the Asian & African Diaspora. All our activities as well as childcare are free-of-charge and we pay artist fees.

Submit Your Film Online via the Entry Form.

Extended Deadline: Friday, May 20, 2011 (NO ENTRY FEE) Post-dated
