VUCAVU is operated by the non profit Coalition of Canadian Independent Media Art Distributors (CCIMAD).
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, which works with independent film and video distributors from across Canada to improve access to Canadian works and to provide greater national and international awareness of Canadian filmmakers and video artists.
VUCAVU offers the following services through its digital distribution platform:
- Free programming series for the public, such as our #EyesOnVu series
- Public access via our account system to preview and rent individual works for online viewing
- Access for curators, programmers and other professionals in the field to research artists and view works
- Online marketing support to promote Canadian filmmakers and video artists
- Online venue access for professional presenters
Canadian filmmakers and video artists who wish to be included on VUCAVU should inquire about distribution services with one of our distribution partners.
