Sundance Fund to Support International Documentary Projects
The Sundance Institute's International Program has announced the creation of
the Sundance Documentary Fund, formerly the Soros Documentary Fund of the
Open Society Institute.

The Sundance Documentary Fund is dedicated to supporting international
documentary films and videos focused on current and significant issues and
movements in contemporary human rights, freedom of expression, social
justice, and civil liberties. In supporting such works, the Sundance
Documentary Fund seeks to give voice to the diverse exchange of ideas
crucial to developing an open society, raise public consciousness about
human rights abuses and restrictions of civil liberties, and engage citizens
in a lively, ongoing debate about these issues.

This highly competitive program only accepts projects dealing with
contemporary issues, and does not accept historical projects, biographies,
or series. Individuals from around the world may apply with documentary film
or video projects that range in length from full broadcast hour to long
format feature. Applicants must have creative and budgetary control over the
proposed documentary. Quality of work samples, strength of proposal,
potential for broad international distribution, and the issue's significance
are elements heavily weighed during the review process.

Two project categories will be considered for funding:
Development Funds: are available for projects in the research or
preproduction phase. Grants in this category range up to $15,000. Grantees
receiving development funds may reapply for additional support upon
completion of at least a rough cut of their documentary.
Work in Progress Funds: are available for projects in production or
postproduction. These submissions are eligible for the maximum grant award
of $50,000, but generally, awards in this category will average $25,000.

I/O is a monthly public video projection program at the Quotidian Gallery in San
Francisco. A different compilation on video, of short pieces of 'time-based media art', will be silently projected and repeated each 4 weeks, on the outside gallery window during closing hours. The gallery is located on the mezzanine (second floor) level of the historic Phelan office building in downtown San Francisco.

I/O has been initiated and is curated by Michael Smit, who is a Dutch artist in San Francisco.

The sidewalk in front of 50 O'Farrell Street is the best place to see I/O; the gallery window is on the opposite side of the street at the second floor level, above a Rite Aid store.

People have been seen to take out some chairs from the back of their cars and make it themselves comfortable while viewing the program...

We are now calling for new submissions for I/O (#3) which will be titled "Skin", referring to the surface on which the video projection is appearing: on the second floor window, on the "skin" of the historic Phelan building. The video projection livens up the already somewhat organic surface of the office building. At night the gallery window is also often the only window lit up. So the theme "Skin" does not necessarily relate to sensual references, but more broadly to the visible physical surface, of living and/or inorganic matter, to the outside layer of living and inorganic forms or 'containers' in the world. However, we encourage artists to understand this in their own ways and interpret it as broadly as they want or can.

The deadline for VHS/NTSC tapes to be received at the Quotidian Gallery (c/o Michael Smit) is the second Thursday of August: Thursday August 8, at 5 pm.

The show will open on 9pm on Thursday August 22, and end on 9am on Thursday September 19.
Announcement Cards will be made and sent out for the opening.

Each work should be no longer than roughly 5 minutes
In general pieces that address or relate more specifically to the nature of this project*, the gallery's location and/or its public conditions, are encouraged.
 *art gallery window; downtown San Francisco; historic office building; the window as screen; inside and outside;  near major shopping and offices; public art; visible from the street for passers-by and hopefully creating also its own audience; projected at night; etc., etc..

Work on VHS tape (NTSC) must be submitted with a completed application form (download it at http://homepage.mac.com/iopublicvideo)
and SAsSE (Self Addressed sufficiently Stamped Envelope). Submissions may be made by mail or in person to:
