Independent Exposure-FotoFest 2004

Microcinema International is pleased to announce a call for works for a special edition of Independent Exposure.

In conjunction with FotoFest 2004, Microcinema will produce a short film and video series dealing with the subject of water.

FotoFest 2004 will take place from Mid-March to Mid-April 2004 in Houston. The focus for the 2004 Biennial is water; water as global resource and inspiration for personal and creative expression. The three directions to FotoFest's exhibition and education programming in 2004 are:

The Global Perspective: Water as historical determinant of human settlement and a force in shaping the future, international politics, and economic development.
The Community Perspective: Water and the quality of life, its potential for enrichment and destruction. This area will have a particular emphasis on cities.
The Personal View: Water as a catalyst for individual expression and aesthetic and spiritual contemplation and creativity.
FotoFest, Inc is a non-profit international arts and education organization, whose purpose is to create an international forum for the exchange, promotion, and public appreciation of photo-related work.

FotoFest's programs bring together an international vision of art with a commitment to cross-cultural education and the strengthening of cultural resources in Houston, the United States, and around the globe. They are committed to providing a forum for the photo-related arts, past and present, and helping to improve education in Houston and the United States.

FotoFest 2004 will take place from March 12 to April 12, 2004 in Houston, Texas. For more info: www.fotofest.com

Microcinema's program will premier in Houston during Fotofest and then tour the world (schedule to be determined).

For our FotoFest Independent Exposure compilation we will accept short video, film and digital-media submissions of 15 minutes or less and are currently looking for narrative, documentary, humorous, dramatic, animation, experimental, alternative, avant-garde, erotic, and underground works that deal in some way with WATER.
