The deadline for submissions is September 15, 2018. To waive the entry fees, please use ​code PDOME2019​. All selected artists will be paid screening fees at or above IMAA rates.



Pleasure Dome is a year-round, artist-run exhibition group dedicated to the presentation and appreciation of experimental film and video.

With a curatorial mandate to program time-based work from local, national and international artists, Pleasure Dome presents a variety of different genres, styles and traditions, from those of the historical avant-garde, to contemporary post-modern strategies of video/film mixes, alongside other attempts to re-imagine the modernist experimental tradition.

In an effort to foster a diverse and inclusive screening environment which encourages attendance from as many sectors of the public as possible, Pleasure Dome exhibits innovative works in traditional and “expanded” presentations, which include installation and other unconventional exhibition formats, all with a low admission cost. We often program short length and small format work while seeking out and presenting works by women, visible and invisible minorities, First Nations and Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, and persons across the spectrum of sexual orientation or gender identity.

We would like to acknowledge funding support from the The Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Toronto Arts Council. Pleasure Dome is made possible through the generous support of our funders, as well as our members, sponsors and community partners.
