Jacquelyn Hébert, VUCAVU’s Community and Program Manager, will host a workshop for artists interested in learning more about online film and video distribution. During the session, she will explain what VUCAVU is and what it offers artists. This will include an overview of other View-on-demand (VOD) platforms and a discussion about how digital tools can be used to promote an artists’ practice.
Participants will learn about VUCAVU’s 8 distribution partners and how artists can have their work added to the platform. Finally, Jacquelyn will discuss how VUCAVU can be used as a curatorial, research, educational and programming tool and what changes are on the horizon as they work to further develop the platform and its functionalities.
VUCAVU.com is operated by the non-profit Coalition of Canadian Independent Media Art Distributors / Coalition canadienne des distributeurs indépendent en arts médiatiques (CCIMAD/CCDIAM). CCIMAD was established in 2013 by a group of independent Canadian film and video distributors to improve international accessibility to their catalogues through a shared digital distribution strategy. To this end, they established VUCAVU to improve access to Canadian works and to provide greater national and international awareness of Canadian filmmakers and video artists.
