Transient Visions: Festival of the Moving Image is an exposition dedicated to exhibiting innovative films and videos under 20 minutes, focusing on experimental works that challenge the conventional cinematic experiences. We will introduce selected films in programs with certain themes, which we will find during the selection process. The screening will take place at Spool Contemporary Art Space, an artist-run alternative space in Johnson City, NY.
The Festival accepts entries of a film/video completed in 2016 and 2017. Please provide us a link to your video, along with a password if needed. Our screening format is QuickTime (mov, h.264, 1920 x 1080 -- if your screening material is different, we may convert it to this format). If the original language is not English, please provide the work with English subtitles.
A curatorial team will make decisions on screening programs, and entrants will be notified via email by September 15, 2017. If your work is selected, we will ask you to provide us a screening copy via WeTransfer or Google Drive.
