Screenings and Exhibitions

LIFT presents occasional screenings and exhibitions of work in Toronto and beyond. We also regularly co-present screenings and exhibitions with other organizations to support an engaged and rigorous media-arts ecology. We can assist hundreds of films each year but without venues and distributors to help them reach the public this work doesn't have the life it deserves. We our fourtunate to live in a city with over 100 film festivals each year, numerous year round programmers and dozens of galleries showing media arts.

 

For inquiries regarding presentation and co-presentation opportunities please contact us.
