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 ?

We invite cellphilm submissions of up to 2 minutes in length. Submit your cellphilm through our online application at

by May 20th,2022.
