Reimagining Cellphilm Festival

FESTIVAL

The festival showcased this year’s award winning cellphilms on the theme, Re-Imaginings.

Also, for the first time ever, this year’s Cellphilm Festival featured a Children’s Under 8 category! Their cellphilms were created on a separate theme: ‘It’s Not Fair’.

Filmmakers were prompted to capture different ways to re-imagine the world; a community challenging discrimination, a safe space, a decolonized world, an equal opportunity for all on the margins, a new way to live together…

There was also a special keynote address from Indigenous Scholar, Dr. Angelina Weenie (First Nation’s University).

Check out the 2022 CODE report. This report details some of the behind the scenes work that went into this year’s festival.

Re-imagine

A community challenging discrimination,

a safe space,

a decolonized world,

an equal opportunity for all on the margins,

a new way to live together …

Share your ideas and stories, and change the world! Create a cellphilm!

As the world twists and turns, the 10th edition of the McGill International Cellphilm Festival invites you to look through the critical lens of cellphilm (cellphone + video) production. To produce  a cellphilm use your cellphone creatively to craft a short film on re-imaginings. How can we confront issues of gender inequality? How can we challenge structural racism? How can cellphilming be an activist tool ?
