September 28 to October 3, 2004




Call for Submissions and Entry Form

Recognizing that the 'environment' is contested terrain, both as a biophysical entity and as a philosophical frame, Planet in Focus invites submissions of films and videos, in all genres, that critically examine the concept of 'environment' and challenge current human/nature relations. Special consideration will be paid to:
works that push the boundaries of the accepted notions of 'environment'
works that present cultural perspectives that are under-represented in Canada
works that will have their world or Canadian premiere at Planet in Focus: Toronto International Environmental Film & Video Festival

Eligibility Criteria

Entries must have a release date after 2000.
Pre-screening copies must be submitted on VHS cassette (NTSC preferred, but PAL also accepted). Each entry must be accompanied by a completed entry form and the appropriate entry fee. Multiple entries may be sent in the same package. Please avoid excessive non-biodegradable packaging. While our long-term goal is to include works in a variety of languages, this year all works submitted should be accessible to English speaking audiences.
