After 43 years publishing writers from around the world, Orlando-based literary journal, The Florida Review has a new online platform, Aquifer: The Florida Review Online. With this new site The Florida Review aims to expand the scope of its publications to include visual art and new media formats. Aquifer is pleased to announce a rolling call for submissions of film and video work for longterm online publication.
Call for submissions will be open year round and works will be published on the website monthly. There is a fee of $2 per submission.
Submissions should be experimental works of film or video that are 15 minutes or less and utilize moving images as a means to poetic expression, formal exploration, or abstract and open-ended narratives. Compelling, personal works that push the boundaries of cinematic convention will also be considered for publication. Works accepted will be hosted on Aquifer’s YouTube channel as well as published on the website.
There are no requirements for year of completion or premiere status, but please note these videos will be available to the public online for an extended period of time. It is recommended that entries be works that have completed any intended festival screenings and do not have plans for future distribution. Please ensure that you have the right to use and share all film and video content before submitting. Submissions are currently only accepted through the platform Submittable.
Aquifer: The Florida Review Online is affiliated with the University of Central Florida and is entirely run by faculty and student volunteers.
