Short Film Program Open Call for Submissions
Curated by Kellee Hughes
"…a sort of delegated onomatopoeia that must be produced, must be projected, so that it can be heard, a sort of abstract onomatopoeia that gives voice to a trembling eyelid."
–Gaston Bachelard from Water And Dreams
"deterritorialization of the cinema into the gallery means that spectators who come to these spaces may have a different set of priorities, beyond the normative expectations of a general cinema audience."–Isaac Julien interviewed by Kass Banning
"…shows no potential for abuse or dependance in clinical studies"
–excerpt from advertisement for sleep aid
We welcome short films with any content and in any style, whether it's live-action, documentary, animation, etc. While we prefer to keep this program open, should you want topical guidelines the curator is currently intrigued with the following, which can be interpreted as broadly as one likes:
Submissions must be received by January 30, 2007.
Entries must be under 30 minutes in length. MINI DV, NTSC VHS or NTSC DVD copies may be submitted for consideration. We also have 8mm, super8 and 16mm available for exhibition purposes. (Please contact before mailing 8mm, super8mm or 16 mm). Submission material will be returned upon request only (please supply SASE), as we will keep it on file to share with independent curators. Please see submission guidelines on our website: www.aferro.org
Selected submissions will be notified by e-mail February 28, 2007.
Please send materials via mail to:
