To advance the arts locally, nationally and internationally, we create art programs and projects that respond actively to the media arts environment.

Open Call for Submissions

Call for Submissions -


PIX FILM Collective continues its partnership with the Artificial Museum in Vienna, Austria with an exciting new opportunity for Canadian artists to work in Augmented Reality (AR).

PIX FILM Collective invites submissions on the theme of transformation. We are inspired by shifts in perspective which challenge outmoded realities. We invite new modes of experience to stimulate positive evolution. We investigate the spaces between geological, virtual and augmented realities. There is not much time left until the beginning of 2030, the UN climate change deadline. Creative eyes can already catch a glimpse of the necessary changes, a vision for humanity’s future that is reachable, sustainable and, frankly, better than what we have now.

11 Canadian artists will be selected to produce and exhibit new work using AR technology and geo mapping. Successful applicants will receive $2,000 in professional artist fees, $1,000 for technical support and production and $300 exhibition fees provided for  the  group show to  be exhibited in augmented reality, in Toronto and ON THE MOON, in Spring 2023.

The project will provide the artists: 

Support and training to create 3D digital artwork, GPS-anchored to real locations, within augmented reality.
Six x 2 hour workshops online must be attended (starting end of January,  2023 schedule TBA).
Knowledge of 2D or 3D animation and illustration is an asset but not required.
