Blurb about the festival....

OCTOBER 6–10, 2010
The Flash Forward Festival is an international five-day biennial event launching in Toronto’s Liberty Village from October 6–10, 2010. The Flash Forward Festival is an extension of The Magenta Foundation’s successful annual emerging photographers competition, Flash Forward. The competition was established as a platform to promote emerging artists and has positioned itself as the critically important vanguard for introducing international emerging talent to a global audience.
The Flash Forward competition receives highly favourable international coverage and is considered to be one of the most important emerging art incubators in the world
The Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward Emerging Artist Program once again does what its name implies: it freezes a brief moment in time, preserving it for closer inspection and demonstrating the promise of what is to come in the international photography community.
— Boston Globe, 2008
In the past five years Flash Forward has helped to launch the careers of more that 500 photographers from Canada, the UK, and the USA. By introducing a biennial festival component to the annual competition, The Magenta Foundation will continue its mission to educate and promote the art stars of tomorrow.
