Deadline for entries is March 8, 2024.

• $8 per entry • Students and Young Filmmakers: Free (Students must include valid student ID along with submission, or send separately to [email protected])

Theme: Indeterminate Self We invite time-based works that explore or that are made with Artificial Intelligence. As AI finds its way more and more into our lives, into art, and into the public discourse, we would like to use this opportunity to question and imagine its impact in all of these contexts. Works submitted in this category are not bound by genre or medium (experimental, performative, narrative, documentary… etc.) as long as they involve the use of AI to some degree in their production. Submissions can also include works that critically address issues related to AI in an investigative, critical, or expressive way.

Performance and Media Exhibition: We also invite submissions to a one-day media and performance exhibition to take place in the Falbo Theater of the Canady Creative Arts Center that interrogate the relationship between the body and technology, intimacy and telepresence. Submissions may include theatre, dance, sound, or other performance works that incorporate audiovisual media. These might include remote, online or otherwise telematic performances. They might include augmented or virtual reality performances. They might include in-person performances involving media. Works may utilize tools like motion sensors, projection, live or fixed media in the engagement with the festival’s theme. Please submit a brief document with your submission describing concept and technical descriptions/requirements. Direct inquiries to [email protected]

REQUIREMENTS/AGREEMENTS •    Maximum running time of 15 minutes. •    Works must have been completed after January 1, 2022. •    Maximum of 2 entries per person. •    Separate entry form and fee required for each entry. •    Deadline for entry: March 8, 2024. •    Applicants allow festival organizers use of accepted works for all promotional materials and events.
