Call: Josephine Massarella Artist Award

The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Torontos (LIFT) longtime
member Josephine Massarella passed away in June of 2018 after a
short illness.

She was an important part of the LIFT community and she will be truly
missed. She was extremely productive in the final five years of her life,
returning to filmmaking after many years spent raising family and care-
giving for relatives. Once she returned, she was at LIFT often, working
on three films, Light Study, No End and 165708, the last of which
we supported through a production grant.

To honour her spirit, and through the support of her family members,
LIFT will inaugurate the Josephine Massarella Artist Award in 2019.

The Josephine Massarella Artist Award will assist female-identifying
artists 50 years and older to return to filmmaking after a long absence.
Eligible applicants are female-identifying, moving-image artists living
within the Greater Toronto and Hamilton areas, who have had to step
away from artistic practice for at least five years and need support in
the research and creation of a first new work on their return.

Deadline is Monday, March 18, 2019 at 5:00pm EST
