FLEX, the Florida Experimental Film/Video Festival, is now accepting submissions for its fourth biennial competitive festival taking place February 18-20, 2011 in Gainesville, FL. The exclusive focus of the festival is on experimental short media, but we encourage artists to challenge us to rethink what 'experimental' means. Work may draw on documentary, animation, avant garde, underground, or other traditions‹-or no traditions at all. Cash and in-kind prizes will be awarded in each of 4 categories (film/video, small/large). Previous jurors have included Craig Baldwin, Naomi Uman, Mike Plante, Abina Manning, Andrea Grover and Tony Gault. In addition, the festival has hosted numerous filmmakers including Jim Trainor, Leighton Pierce, Deborah Stratman, Bill Brown, Jim Finn, Robert Todd, Scott Stark, Jacqueline Goss, Helga Fanderl, Michael Gitlin, and Johan Grimonprez.
