Overwhelming response to latest call for submissions to make festival the biggest to date
Since beginning three years ago, the Mosaic International Film Festival of Arts and Culture has grown from a local event into a celebration of emerging filmmakers that attracts submissions from more than 20 countries. This year the festival received the highest number of submissions to date.
As if that wasn’t enough to make this the biggest and best year ever for the festival, a new presenting partner has also signed on to host the event. The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 is the new home of the festival for the next two years, creating a strong link between Canada’s history of immigration and the emerging filmmakers the festival showcases.
Considering all of the above, the festival is moving from its traditional time at the end of the year to March 26, 2023. This allows our panel of jurors more time to deliberate and ensures all submissions are given the consideration they deserve.
“We created this festival to provide emerging filmmakers with a venue where they could showcase their work, and they have responded in great numbers,” says Ifeanyi Emesih, executive director of the festival. “Our new schedule also allows for increased collaboration with our newest partner, the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, to create a stronger program for the festival.”
Thank you to all the festival partners and filmmakers for making the Mosaic International Film Festival of Arts and Culture such as success and we hope you’ll join us in celebrating these emerging filmmakers in 2023.
