The Toronto Arab Film and Trinity square Video present the inaugural TAF x TSV Filmmaker Commission, which will be awarded to a local (Toronto-based) filmmaker, to start and complete a short 5-10 minute film between June 2021 - January 2022. The commission will include in-kind credit from TSV that can be used for equipment rentals, workshops and/or post-production services.
This is ideally suited to filmmakers who are interested in short films (format: narrative, doc, or experimental). Applicants must be ready to start and finish a film between June 2021 to January 2022. This is ideal for emerging Arab identifying artists who have little to no experience in film. It is meant to introduce applicants to the film field in Toronto and guide them through making a short film.
The final film will be screened at the 3rd annual Toronto Arab Film Festival in 2022.
