Close-up on the Arts
Since 2013, the Canada Council for the Arts and the Independent Media Arts Alliance have put out a call to professional Canadian filmmakers to create video portraits of the award winners.
The response from the media arts community is always enthusiastic, as the selected filmmakers are given the opportunity to create a short film about a key figure in the visual or media arts with full creative control over their work.
