FILM POP - Call For Submissions

Pop Montreal International Music Festival
Sept. 21-25, 2011 | Montreal, Canada |

Film Pop! is the film and multimedia section of the Pop Montreal International Music Festival, which celebrates its 10th edition from September 21-25th. In addition to premieres of new music-related features, we will also be showcasing short films, slideshows, repertory curated packages and more, and we are currently accepting  submissions for three components of the Film Pop! program, as described below.

There is no entry fee, and arrive-by deadline is Friday June 3, 2011. All submissions must be accompanied by a submission form. All submissions must be Montreal premieres and have been created after Oct.1, 2010.

1) Feature films and short films
Feature film submissions (52min +) can be documentaries about specific artists, labels, musical genres, movements or current issues related to music, or they may be narrative films with a strong musical component. Short film submissions should follow these same guidelines, with special preference given to short films that may fit into our proposed special program 'Remake/Remodel', a curated package of D.I.Y. dramatizations and unauthorized bio-pics of real musicians.

Feature and Short Film submissions must be sent on playable DVD. Other than the submission form and the DVD, no additional materials are required at this stage. If selected, we will contact you for images and any other press materials.

2) Slideshows
Among Film Pop's special presentations for our 10th anniversary will be a slideshow program in which artists have 3-10minutes to present a live 35mm slideshow of their own creation. Slideshows can utilize a mixture of image and text, original and found images, and be accompanied by pre-recorded music, live narration, or live music (technical requirements permitting).

You do not need to physically submit a completed slideshow by the June 3 deadline, but you must submit a 250-word abstract, as well as 3 examples of past film/video/visual arts work. With your abstract please list any special technical requirements for your slideshow that exceed the standard set-up of 35mm slide projector, screen and CD player.

3) Installations
Film Pop! is accepting film/video-based installations with a musical focus for exhibition in our pop-up shop. The work may consist of several parts but must work as one unified piece. Preference will be given to installations with reasonable spacial and technical requirements, although if the artist is able to identify potential co-presenters who will assist with material and technical expenses, it is appreciated, and will help with the selection process.

By the June 3 deadline, artists must submit a 250-word description of the installation, photos of any previous exhibitions of the installation, as well as an itemized list of technical and material requirements (including electrical outlets, methods and volume of amplification, screens, video/film projectors, video decks, projected shipping costs for any materials) and the dimensions of the piece. Please note this installation will be sharing the space (roughly 1000-1200 square feet) with evening events, daytime screenings and media booths.


We will contact those artists whose work has been accepted for Film Pop 2011 no later than June 15th. Please note that due to limited timeslots, Film Pop is a very competitive program, so please send your submissions as early as possible.

Questions regarding the submission process should be sent to
