Altered Images v.III

Artistic field:



Altered Images is a project for film and music experimentation. We bring together artists from various disciplines to create original and unique pieces that will be shown at different events. We are focused in New Media Arts, Sound, Performance, Inclusivity, Feminism and Queer Activism.

​Our showcase is opened to artists  whose work has an experimental and innovative character. 

​The goal of the showcase is to create events of live music, projections, performances and art installations where people can enjoy the show in a relaxed, inclusive and friendly environment.

We are looking for brave and risky filmmakers, who like to explore with the sound and the different hints another artist can give to their images.

​One of our priorities is to look after the selected videos and performances  we are showcasing and the artists behind them (social media and trough different plattforms), inviting them to attend to the event, when possible, and providing feedback to all of them.

Ageing from Existence




projektado collective is opening for video contributions to its latest project ‘Ageing from existence’. Open to everyone, professional or amateur, and driven by an experimental and collaborative approach to audiovisual communication, this project is an opportunity to delve into a shared and unpredictable process.

All video submissions will be used in the final piece, as long as they don’t infringe any of our platform’s guidelines* and relate to the topic explored in this open call.

‘Ageing from existence’ is not a project about death, or the idea of material transformation in time. Instead, our attention is on what is thrown away too soon; on people, practices and ideas that have been consumed by the aura of perceived obsolescence too often placed on socially significant parts of our lives. With the aim of shedding light on what, even when still living, active, meaningful, useful, is ignored from existence.

We see this in people and social activities, in the lack of intergenerational spaces and practices, in the segregation of the ageing population, in the inadequate support systems available to this demographic group that is rapidly growing but is still treated as a minority, in a longevity revolution that is happening but is not recognised.

We also experience these phenomena in the material world around us, with more and more of it falling into disuse due to external factors, rather than its intrinsic ability to last and function: technologies made ‘obsolete’ by an ever changing market obsessed with novelty and ‘innovation’; clothing, music, art, systems of communication that remain associated and relegated to socio-cultural contexts of the past; contents and media that are rapidly buried under the incessant production of more things to read, see, hear, know, experience; ideas, cultures, heritages that struggle to be heard in the chaotic and forgetful world of today.

This project aims to explore this urgent topic through storytelling. We will adopt an experimental and collaborative approach to content curation and visual communication to tell the stories of things, bodies and notions from an array of geographical and historical contexts. We are embarking on a challenge to assemble stories told through diverse perspectives and formats, and transform them into a coherent narrative.

We are asking for video submissions, of any format, length (min. 5 seconds), quality, or style. Submissions can be film, animation, phone videos, or any other media that can be displayed in video format.

Contributions should be made with the consideration of the collaborative and experimental nature of the project. To create a unique storytelling experience, an incremental curating process will be undertaken by the collective, where videos will be cut, edited and combined with each other, towards a unified whole.


*You may not submit content that: infringes any third party’s copyrights or other rights; is pornographic or promotes a sexual service; promotes or supports defamation, harassment or abuse; promotes or supports hateful or discriminatory practices; exploits or endangers minors; promotes or encourages self-harm or suicide; depicts unlawful real-world acts of extreme violence and brutality, sexualized violence, including rape, torture, and humiliation, or extreme violence towards animals; promotes unlawful or dubious money-making schemes, proposes an unlawful transaction, or uses deceptive marketing practices; conveys misleading information about socially and historically significant events, or false claims about public-health.

Adventure Filmmakers Workshop - Fall 2022


Artistic field:




The Adventure Filmmakers Workshop is an exceptional chance for independent and emerging filmmakers to advance their skills under the guidance of two of the world’s premier and proven adventure filmmakers. During a jam-packed 10 days in the fall, participants will hone their craft, strengthen their skills, whilst networking with fellow filmmakers, industry insiders, and decision-makers. 

This all takes place within the core of the Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival, where epic stories are told through the eyes of adventurers, authors, photographers, and filmmakers from around the globe.

What does the program offer?

Workshop sessions will help participants sharpen their narrative, vision, organize their workflow, develop audio and editing techniques, and perfect their pitches. Our faculty promote an open, interactive, and creative atmosphere. 

We pack the days with hands-on practice, lively discussion, and brainstorming. We’ll welcome industry insiders as guest speakers, offering rare access to potential mentors, collaborators, sponsors, and backers. On-campus lodging and meals are provided — all that participants have to do is focus on their craft and soak up the inspiration. For a full schedule view the itinerary section below. 

Who should apply?

This workshop is designed for emerging filmmakers with a few projects already under their belt. To get the most from the program, applicants should have a strong desire to take the next step in all aspects of their filmmaking, including pre-production, pitching, location skills, the handling of the edit, and distribution. Past participants have included elite athletes transitioning to filmmaking, adventurers wanting to expand to different media platforms, and established filmmakers wanting to break into the adventure genre. 

This program is not aimed at those who only want to explore what it is like to be an adventure filmmaker – the Adventure Filmmakers Workshop is for those who are committed to filmmaking as a life choice.

A strong knowledge base of technical sound, camera, and editing skills is essential. Applicants are encouraged to focus on one specific film project that they have in mind and to be prepared to share it with the group.

Enrolment is limited to 18 participants.

Program Dates: October 28 - November 06, 2022

Prizes Details: 

Application fee: $65 ($35 for applicants who identify as Indigenous)

*Financial Aid of $1531.71 is available for this program.
