Support Canyon

Submitting Work

To submit work for consideration in Canyon Cinema’s distribution program (non-members), or to deposit new titles (current members), please use the following film/video submission form:

We accept submissions for possible distribution on an ongoing basis. However,
we request that non-members limit their number of submissions to a maximum of 3 titles per year.

New submissions are reviewed approximately 1-3 times per year, by a committee composed of Canyon board, staff, and artist members, and an external specialist. This committee changes over each year.

Preview links (and any necessary passwords) can be submitted via the online form. We also accept DVD or Blu-ray copies, mailed to the following address:

Canyon Cinema Foundation
1777 Yosemite Avenue, Suite #210
San Francisco, CA 94124 USA

We encourage you to explore our collection and to consider our mission carefully prior to submission. Canyon Cinema is dedicated to educating the public about independent, non-commercial, experimental, avant-garde, and artist-made moving images. We ensure the experience of rare film works in their original medium while also reaching new audiences through our growing digital distribution program.

Please Note: An annual $100 account maintenance fee is due from each Canyon artist member at the end of every calendar year. This fee goes directly towards supporting Canyon’s artist services (cataloging work, promotion, reporting, etc.).

Any questions should be directed to us via email at
