Mobile Frames

Mobile Frames is an international filmmaker in residence series that invites emerging and established artists from around the world to create new films in the border region of Windsor, Ontario and Detroit, Michigan. The program facilitates and promotes the work of artist filmmakers while training area residents in the techniques and applications of artistic film production.

Mobile Frames encourages the development of new relationships between visiting filmmakers and community members, building collaborative partnerships between organizations on both sides of the border and around the world, through production international exhibition activities.

Mobile Frames offers free public programming including hands-on film workshops, exploratory bike tours, screenings, lectures, and other public events.

The series is presented by Media City Film Festival, together with Momentum Film & Video Collective and other rotating partners on both sides of the US/Canadian border has been made possible through support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts.

Mobile Frames is the only residency program to operate on both sides of an international border. Expansions of Mobile Frames programs have begun to tour  to countries around the world.
