OUR CAMPER PROGRAM IS AN ONGOING CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

SOMETIMES WE HAVE SPECIAL CALLS FOR CAMPER, THIS IS WHAT OUR LAST CALL LOOKED LIKE:

Bike-in Cinema: Main Course Discourse

We are currently seeking submissions for new or pre-existing short films to be included in TRUCK’s Bike-in Cinema thematic screening: Main Course Discourse
 
The snow is gone and the outdoor grilling season is here and TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary wants to see your artful videos based on accumulating, consuming, or preparing edibles under the sun. From valuable survival tips around en plein air cuisine to entertaining step-by-step grilling guides for your favorite patio provisions this thematic screening hopes to serve up some tummy tickling topics of entertainment.
 
Bike-in Cinema is an outdoor screening series hosted by TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary’s CAMPER (Contemporary Art Mobile Public Exhibition Rig). Using the CAMPER as a site for projection, Bike-in Cinema encourages exploration of Calgary’s urban environment, presenting screenings around the city.

TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary is a non-profit artist-run centre dedicated to the development and public presentation of contemporary art. TRUCK’s CAMPER is a 1975 Dodge Empress motor-home, modified to become a portable public exhibition and project space. CAMPER’s mandate is to investigate the places where art, education and recreation meet, and to explore these intersections in a participatory manner that fosters public engagement and appreciation of contemporary art practices.
