The inaugural ReWilding: Climate-Focused Experimental Media-Arts Festival seeks experimental climate-focused films, video art, and animations - works that move beyond documenting issues to engage audiences and spur activism.

The festival will coincide with Western Michigan University's (WMU) Climate Emergency: Spring into Action 2024 hosted by the WMU Climate Change Working Group.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:
 Imagining climate futures
 Highlighting environmental injustices
 Exploring personal and community climate impacts
 Inspiring change through unconventional storytelling
 Staying with the trouble, or how to live on a ruined planet
 Second Nature
 Non-Human Politics
 Internet of Animals

ReWilding: Climate-Focused Experimental Media-Arts Festival aims to present works and to incubate a community for artists and change-makers taking bold creative risks on climate themes rarely shown in mainstream media.

We encourage artists worldwide to use their creative tools to produce unconventional moving images that can shake audiences out of inertia and get people engaged. Please submit your moving images through the FilmFreeway listing. Please include an artist statement, bio, 1-3 video stills, and a link or uploaded file.

Submissions will be curated by Eric Souther, Jacklyn Brickman, and the WMU Audio Visual Student Club. Submit here Free, Due Feb 1, 2024: https://filmfreeway.com/ReWildingEMF
