Clive Holden is a Canadian new media artist, filmmaker and poet. His best-known and publicized project to date is the award-winning "film poem" series Trains of Winnipeg, a collection of 14 short films featuring Holden's poetry with musical accompaniment by Christine Fellows, John K. Samson, Jason Tait, Steve Bates and Emily Goodden. Nine of these short films we will screen during Cavia's Screening Room on Sunday the 24th of September.
Poets, filmmakers, media artists, and digital artists are called to submit their work to the 1st Annual Film and Video Poetry Symposium.
This film festival and symposium will screen a large scope of film and video projects developed through the medium of poetry. Eligible submissions have a maximum length of 32 minutes. There are no restrictions regarding when the film was produced or if the film has premiered regionally or internationally. There are no restrictions on subject matter, theme or topic.
Oscillation Transia Film Festival is a non-profit organization, exploring the intersection of solar energy application and environmental awareness through the art of film. Our goal is to unite a diverse population of Americans by means of a free, open-to-the-public film festival where dreamers and allies of the future can come together to experience and discuss environmental awareness through low-impact outdoor cinema.
