Moss Index is a bi-annual screening series featuring films/videos about looking at nature ("nature"), interacting with the environment ("the environment"), and investigating the border regions where the human and the not-human intersect. An invitation to look at the environment might usually imply a certain political goal, but we are interested in starting further back: decolonizing our ways of seeing and imagining alternative socio-ecologies. Plant-vision, inter-species encounters, unmapping, wet thresholds. This is not a green film fest.
Moss Index accepts all formats, all lengths, all years, and there is no submission fee. Proposals for expanded cinema performances and other live formats are also welcome. Programs are curated from newly and/or previously submitted material. Screenings take place at Artists' Television Access in San Francisco.
