  • 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 such issues as gender inequality and structural racism? How can cellphilming be an activist tool? 

This year we have $5000 in prizes for both individual and group submissions!
