Welcome to the McGill International Cellphilm Festival
Cellphilming is an academic and artistic method of expression that emerged from years of experience of social science educators engaged in activism. The technique uses cellphones, tablets, and other hand-held devices to create a short video where community-engaged participants represent their ways of looking at particular critical issues in their lives. It emerges from a rich history of Participatory Visual Research Methodology to counterbalance the unequal power relations and break down the formalism between researchers and their collaborators.
Now in its 12th year, we invite you to submit to our upcoming t and showcase your message to the world.
