CALL FOR PROPOSALS – Make a short film for imagineNATIVE ’08!

Do you have a great idea for a 5 minute short film? Explore 16mm or Super 8mm film through the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) workshops, shoot and edit your own film, and see your film on screen at the 9th Annual imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival, which will take place in Toronto from October 15-19, 2008!

About the Courses:

Handmade Filmmaking in 16mm OR Super 8mm (VALUE $500 each course)

The all-inclusive hands-on film course will give you a basic foundation in camera operation, hand processing, optical printing and a wide variety of animation techniques. This course is open to absolute beginners and is a great opportunity to develop a project beyond the idea stage.

Participants will receive the opportunity to use the following LIFT equipment and LIFT facilities outside of designated class time:
– 1 Bolex for 1 weekend or 2 week days
– 8 hours with the animation camera
– 8 hours with either of LIFT’s optical printers
– 8 hours of darkroom time
– 12 hours of flatbed editing time
– 100 feet of 16mm or Super8mm film

Additional costs for film stock and transferring to digital will be covered by imagineNATIVE (up to $500 value).

Eligibility Criteria:
– This call is open to Aboriginal candidates only;
– Preference will be given to emerging artists or to video artists who have not worked in film;
– Candidates must commit to attending the LIFT training workshops from May 22nd to July 26, 2008.

Deadline: Friday May 9th, 2008
