Digi60 is a space for new and emerging local filmmakers to share their work in a supportive environment and find opportunities for professional development.
This year, all festival programming will take place online due to the pandemic. CBC Ottawa is proud to return as the festival’s media sponsor.
Submit your snapshot of Ottawa-Gatineau
For the Community Screening, Digi60 is looking for short films that showcase a snapshot of Ottawa-Gatineau, through the eyes of diverse content creators, filmmakers, video and media artists.
Any short video project is eligible, including short films, video poetry, video art, experimental films, animated shorts and music videos. Digi60 will be prioritizing projects that meet the following criteria:
- Locally made/produced (Ottawa-Gatineau and surrounding areas)
- Films by diverse voices including BIPOC creators, LGBTQ2S+ creators, francophone creators and women creators
- Shorts under or around 15 minutes in length (any genre or medium)
- Films that have not screened at Digi60 before
The Community Screening is an opportunity for professional, student and hobby filmmakers to screen their existing works to a new audience in a non-competitive setting. This screening block showcases the impact of creativity and storytelling in film and media arts and there is no charge to submit.
The deadline for submissions to the Community Screening is Nov. 15. Click here for more information.
