LiveBox will be media arts guest curator for the Around The Coyote Festival this October. The Festival expects 10,000 visitors this year. The Festival and Gallery are undergoing exciting changes under the new directorship of Allison Stites, previously the director of Franklin Parrasch Gallery in Midtown (a contemporary sculpture gallery) and then head curator of 65 Hope Street Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
The Festivals film and video screenings have always been popular, but this year's vision is far more ambitious than screenings on roof tops and in bars. The Festival has acquired a large building to house video and new media installations, a screening space and a video lounge.
The commitment to media is truly exciting. We are looking for video and new media proposals as well as film and video for screenings. Submissions must be recieved by July 1st.
Format: Please send a CD with resume, statement, short synopsis of the work, and jpg images. Video should be NTSC DVD, if your piece is in PAL, please send mini DV tape. Label DVD and case with title, running time and contact info. Note materials will not be returned, unless specifically requested.
