“Engauge”, a new experimental film festival based in Seattle, WA, invites you to submit your work.
Created to highlight and augment the work of the Lightpress Grants offered twice yearly by Interbay Cinema Society, “Engauge” will consider only films that originated on film. That means that somewhere in the filmmaking process, you the filmmaker actually worked directly with celluloid, either by loading it into a camera and shooting film, or looking through and selecting found film footage, or directly scratching, painting, drawing onto or collaging footage.
The Moving Image Society is hosting its inaugural "Save the Archives" benefit screening! In line with our ongoing programming efforts, we want to provoke discussion about the place of analog media and its preservation in a digital world. We invite submissions of works made on or using "obsolete media" (analog video, small-gauge celluloid film like 8mm and 16mm), found footage works made with any media, and any films that are about or related to archives, preservation, restoration, or provenance.
A Collaboration between the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre and Queer Media Database bring you rarely seen 16mm gems!
This program approaches the historical role of Queer cultural production in the formation of our senses of self. In a time when feelings are facts and there is a broader questioning of the primacy of First-Person Narrative Truth, we take this opportunity for a post-Pride breather to make meaning of our queer realities. This program is made up of a selection of 16mm film from the CFMDC collection that speak not only to the times in which they were produced but also to the complex political landscape we find ourselves in now.
