Concordia Film Festival: Call for Submissions - Emerging Voices

Emerging Voices: Geographies, Genres & Styles - Deadline Extended to April 25th!
The Concordia Film Festival (CFF)

Previously known as the Moving Image Seminar, Emerging Voices is a platform for students to present their research projects, journals, papers, or any academic ventures in an environment inclined to discuss and learn. Due to the unforeseen events afflicting us for the past year, this year's iteration will take place online. The event will be structured as a screening where the selected students will have time to develop their ideas. This will be followed by a Q&A moderated by the section's coordinators, Juan Ospina and Santiago Posada.

Submissions for Emerging Voices have been extended and will remain open until April 25th, 2021, through this link:

Submissions will be carried out through Google Forms, where potential participants will be asked to submit a written project. The length of the submissions should be between 4 to 15 pages.

In the case of being selected, the participants will be contacted for a discussion that will be recorded and streamed during the festival.

The Emerging Voices section will be sponsored by Offscreen. The four selected winners from each subject will be pushed on Offscreen and will be awarded with $100 each as well.

For this year's iteration, we are centering Emerging Voices around three main subjects: National Cinemas, Film Genres, and Film Styles. The subjects are not mutually exclusive; a participant can highlight one or more subjects in their project. Submissions that fail to fall under these categories will not be accepted.

The Concordia Film Festival and the Emerging Voices team wish you the best of luck and look forward to reviewing your submissions.
