Independent Exposure - A Monthly Microcinema Screening Program of
International Short Films, Videos and Digital Works
The Independent Exposure microcinema-screening program began in 1996 in
Seattle and now is based in San Francisco and Houston. The program, held
every month, has presented the short film, video and digital works of over
750 artists from all over the world. Beyond the San Francisco and Houston
screenings, Independent Exposure also has been presented hundreds of times
in 36 countries and Antarctica!
2003 is the eighth season of Independent Exposure, which is based out of the
111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco, CA with a complementary satellite
screening series at the Firestation #3 in Houston, TX. We want to show your
work to audiences throughout the world, so please submit your work(s) now!

There is now a US$5.00 entry fee for United States and Canadian artists.
Due to high postage costs, we are waiving entry fees to filmmakers from
outside the US and Canada. Please include any supporting materials

of entries, we are unable to return your submission but we will get back to
you regarding your submission(s)!
Microcinema will contact you before including any entry at its monthly
Independent Exposure screening in San Francisco and/or Houston. All artists
will be paid an honorarium when their work is screened in the San Francisco
and Houston shows. Artists also will qualify for a non-exclusive
Microcinema Distribution through Exhibition Agreement for subsequent
international screenings. Microcinema pays its artists royalties for
screenings, TV broadcast, VHS/DVD and Internet sales. If we make money, the
artists make money!
