Submission Form:

GAMES FOR WINDOWS: Experiments with Video Game Footage is a store-front video exhibition that will run October 4 through November 17, 2019 at the Liquor Store (Rochester, NY) as part of the Current Seen exhibition series.

What are we looking for:
Experimental video art made with video game footage.

This can take the form of a more traditional machinima piece, or something completely different. We want to see a Stan Brakhage film made on a Game Boy , or the N64 Flaming Creatures. Surprise us, make us weep.

We encourage submissions that experiment with the splicing of game footage with other content (personal or appropriated). If you make interesting games, consider making video art within them.

We're also open to ROM hacks and homebrews that can run in attract mode.

Works are preferably between 1 - 10 minutes.

Due to the nature of the store front installation, audio is currently limited. Don't let this hinder you!

Who should apply:
ANYONE. Formally trained artists, hobbyists, game designers. The goal of this exhibition is a subversion of both games and cinema. We are especially interested in pro-affection, anti-fascist, feminist artworks that challenge our notions and systems.
