So far 45 filmmakers have signed on to the initiative, including Anita Doron, John Greyson, Richard Fung, Igor Drljaca, Sadaf Foroughi, Ann Marie Fleming, Nadia Litz, and Andre Turpin.

The short films are two to five minutes in length and span all genres, including fiction, documentary, essay and video diary.

Each filmmaker is using their own equipment to film in their living space, with no budget attached.

A news release says "Greetings from Isolation" is operating with no funding attached.

Should any revenue be generated in the future from the project, all proceeds will be donated to Food Banks Canada.
