A NEW WAVE OF TORONTO'S MEDIA & MUSIC SCENE
Curated by active filmmakers and artists, Toronto New Wave (TNW) represents the work of budding creatives of the highest caliber both locally and internationally. Our mission is to celebrate the experimental, undiscovered talent of the new generation of artists that are taking creative risks. As a not-for-profit organization, our goal is to create a platform that builds meaningful connections between up-and-coming artists and local audiences, allowing the independent art scene in this city to flourish. We believe that by providing a platform for new voices using new forms to tell new stories we can be a catalyst for a new wave of social and political change.
The TNW program will feature selections from our Made In Canada and World New Wave categories, including:
1) Short films (narrative, documentary, music videos, animation, experimental)
2) Live music performances
3) Interactive new media art (installation, VR/AR/MR, 360 Film, etc.)
TNW combines the cinematic experiences of watching films on the big screen, attending a live concert, and participating in an immersive VR experience. This cultivates a relationship between the film, music and interactive communities and offers a unique, entertaining experience for audiences.
Keeping up the tradition of shining the spotlight on local talent, the evening will showcase an award ceremony featuring over thousands of dollars in prizes for our festival submissions. For our creators we are providing categorized awards (judged by industry panel), Q&A sessions with audiences following screenings, an exclusive, industry after-party for artists, filmmakers & their friends, and an opportunity to be featured on our social media outlets, regardless of selection status.
Our third annual event will be taking place on August 23rd at the Daniels Spectrum (585 Dundas Street East).
Look out for ticket sale information coming out soon.
