Brampton filmmakers and video producers have a chance to showcase their work while rubbing shoulders with industry insiders at a screening next month.

The Brampton Arts Organization (BAO) is calling on video producers and filmmakers in Brampton for the second-annual Brampton Film Screening and Networking night.

Local creators are invited to submit their finished or work-in-progress short films for screening at Brampton’s Cyril Clark Theatre on April 19. The event is part of National Canadian Film Day and will give local creators a chance to showcase their pieces and network with industry insiders in the world of film, video, and video arts.

Ten submissions will be selected by a panel of BAO staff, the City of Brampton’s Tourism and Film office, as well as local Brampton filmmakers. Each piece selected will also be paid a fee of $150 for the night.

Submissions will only be accepted from Brampton or Peel Region filmmakers and creators, and can not be longer than 10 minutes. The showcase is open to all genres and the BAO said it will curate a variety of genres and film types.

The BAO said priority will be given to applicants who are able to attend the event on April 19 in person, and individuals who belong to equity-deserving groups, including those who are deaf, disabled, or identify as Indigenous, Black, People of Colour, 2SLGBTQIAP.
