For the last 14 years, we’ve tried to create something seriously unique with the Vox Popular Media Arts Festival. We’ve explored different disciplines, inviting artists of all backgrounds to contribute to the festival. And we continuously try to push the boundaries of what media and film can be, by showcasing the most cutting-edge techniques out there to the general public.
As a result, the festival is something we’re truly proud of, and can’t wait for September to show you all. But in the meantime, we have some news.
According to Flightnetwork, North America’s leading travel agency, Vox Popular Media Arts Festival was just placed among the Top 20 Film Festivals in North America! We’re named alongside festivals that have long inspired us, and partners in the industry that we’re proud to share space with.
Here’s what they had to say about us:
The Vox Popular Media Arts Festival allows the voice of the people from around the world to be heard in a local environment.
The Festival (formerly the Bay Street Film Festival) will celebrate its 14th anniversary from September 13-16, 2018. Vox Popular programs include all genres of media arts – documentary, features, shorts, experimental, 360VR, and installations made in Northwestern Ontario, Canada and internationally.
The annual festival and year-round programming connects professional independent filmmakers with other artists and to audiences of all ages and interests by showing films, facilitating creative and professional development and multidisciplinary arts performances in an accessible, inclusive, friendly environment.
That’s it, folks. And to note: festival passes are going fast for $30 CAD. We can’t wait for September, and especially to welcoming any new Flightnetwork readers that may come. See you then!
