To faculty, alumni, and current students,

Call for submissions from contemporary artists and filmmakers creating work that
incorporates Super 8mm, 16mm, 35mm or altered light projections as part of a live
performance or installation.  We believe there is magic in seeing a film print
projected, a presence a poet has when reading their own work, a feeling that resonates
in your chest when seeing music performed live.  For these reasons we encourage
live projections with live additional audio/visual/performative elements.  More
information on the event history, previous years participants, images, entry details
and entry form can be found here:
