Call for Video-based Art
There are two facets to the video component of the New Forms Festival
The first is dedicated to exploring new realms of cinematic
experimentation: New Cinema
The cinematic heritage has become, by and large, based on
conventions. However, new technologies, accompanied by new artistic
approaches, have allowed artists to break these conventions and
explore a new realm of cinematic potential. New Cinema Performance
Artists are exploring the possibilities of creating, remixing and
performing cinematic works live, on-the-fly and often un-sequenced.
The traditional "shot" becomes a musical note in the composition of
the piece; mixing, uniting, and interacting with the surroundings and
accompanying sights and sounds. Cinema is no longer static, but
performable, unique, and malleable in the moment - whether it be in
the form of live performance, documentary, and/or audiovisual
We invite you to submit your video works which illustrate some of the
characteristics of New Cinema mentioned above. Audiovisual
performances are strongly encouraged.

The second video component is a screening room/lounge where any and
all interesting video art which explores the relationship(s) between
audio and video will be presented. We invite you to submit your
video works, of any length or style, to this portion of the festival.
