Close-up on the Arts
Since September 2013, the Canada Council for the Arts and the Independent Media Arts Alliance have put out an annual call to professional Canadian filmmakers, asking them to create video portraits of the award winners. The selected filmmakers are given full creative control of their work and collaborate with the winners to create unique video portraits.
In addition to the GGArts website, the videos are available on Youtube. Through special partnerships, they can also be viewed on both Air Canada and VIA Rail entertainment systems.
