The City is holding a one-day film festival on November 2, 2019 featuring several documentaries on the present and future challenges of cities across the world. Organized in conjunction with Hot Docs, they are looking to boost civic awareness in Mississauga and provide unique engagement opportunities for residents.
As part of the overall event, they have created the Our Future City Short Film Competition, inviting professional and amateur filmmakers alike to submit 5 minute films that focus on the future of the city and what it means to be from Mississauga. The most successful films (based on creative engagement with the theme, artistic merit and technical achievement) will be screened at the November event in front of industry professionals, City staff and film fans across the GTA.
