The Parkdale Film + Video Showcase is an eclectic showcase of film, video and media art by artists who live and/or work in Toronto’s dynamic Parkdale community. We feature pay-what-you-can film and video screenings, installations, performances, and workshops held throughout Toronto’s most creative neighbourhood.
Formerly known as REHAB: Parkdale Film + Video Showcase, this annual festival began in 1999 and is now organized by the Parkdale Beauty Pageant Society.
The Parkdale Beauty Pageant Society is a community-based renewable collective of Parkdale-engaged artists, curators and arts administrators who work with each other, community groups and community partners to organize and promote the many film and video artists who live and/or work in the Parkdale area through an annual summer festival, the Parkdale Film + Video Showcase.
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
