  • Outcasting / VODO

    By on

    Outcasting and online media distributor, VODO, have joined forces with the support of Arts Council Wales to curate 12 high-quality moving-image artworks over a two-year period and exhibit them to large-scale new audiences internationally.

    The partnership will promote works as part of VODO’s event-based release programme between 2013 and 2015, curated by Outcasting with this specific method and context of exhibition in mind. The curatorial framework is governed by selection of material appropriate to small-screen exhibition. Works that address issues of post-digital culture, mass-distribution and online engagement are of particular interest for their resonance with the project context, but programming will not be limited to these.

  • 21st Chicago Underground Film Festival

    By on

    The Chicago Underground Film Festival exists to showcase the defiantly independent filmmaker. Our mission is to promote films and videos that dissent radically in form, technique, or content from the “indie” mainstream and to present adventurous works that challenge and transcend commercial and audience expectations…if you suspect your film is “underground,” it probably is.

    Founded in 1993, The Chicago Underground Film Festival (CUFF) is a year-round organization dedicated to the work of film and video makers with defiantly independent visions. Unlike many other “independent” film events our goal is not to imitate old guard, market-driven events such as Sundance but Instead to focus on the artistc, aesthetic and fun side of independent filmmaking. CUFF promotes works that dissent radically in form, content and technique from both the tired conventions of Hollywood and the increasingly stagnant IndieWood mainstream.
