(dis)junctions Media Festival 2010
States of Crisis, New Interventions: A Festival of Contemporary Independent Screen Cultures from Digital Video to Social Media
We are seeking media works for the (dis)junctions Multi-Media Festival 2010 that complement this year’s theme: States of Crisis. States of Crisis in screen cultures is a fitting theme for this year’s Multi-Media Festival which combines the traditional film festival with other artistic and creative works. Crisis may be broadly determined as the subject of the text or an idea the text itself illustrates. The crisis of knowledge and art in the digital age, crisis of communication with the proliferation of communications technologies, crisis of identity in a postmodern world, crisis or media interpretation, and economic crisis in contemporary culture are just some of the themes that we hope to explore through this festival. Submissions for the festival may include, but are not limited to, digital or analogue photography exhibitions, alternative textualities (i.e. hyperlinked text, poetry through text messaging, first-person narration via social networking media, collaboratively authored texts making innovative use of print or social media, etc.), and film and digital shorts of no more than 20 minutes duration. The festival begins with a screening and exhibition of all the chosen works, followed by a round table discussion with the artists and a reception with refreshments. At the end of the night, awards may be given in the following categories: Best Digital/Film Short, Best Still Image Exhibition, Best Digital Media (non-film) Presentation, Audience Choice Award. The festival will take place at the close of (dis)junctions on April 10th 6-8pm.
Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words describing your work along with whichever of the following best suits your project:
- a DVD of your film or media file
- a PDF or JPEG sample of your project
Please include the name of the creator(s) and contact information. All submissions must be received by March 8, 2010.
