Call For Submissions: Appropriation Alliance Critical Remix Festival 2011
APPROPRIATION ALLIANCE is pleased to announce the first Critical Remix
Festival call for submissions. The Critical Remix Festival is a juried
film festival that will serve as the kick-off event for the 2011 year at
Gallery 25 in Fresno, CA. The opening screening will take place on
Thursday, January 6, 2011 from 5 PM to 10 PM. The gallery will host
screenings on each of the following weekends until January 30, 2011.
ENTRY DETAILS and ELIGIBILITY
The theme for this inaugural festival is "War and Oil." The call for
submissions is open to all artists working with the medium of Critical
Remix (commonly found on YouTube and also known as Political Remix Video
or media stylos). The remix must use found footage: for example,
corporate advertising, Hollywood films, TV shows, archive footage of
war, etc. The remix you submit must have been created after January
2009, and we especially encourage new work. Our sponsors and the
Appropriation Alliance will serve as jurors for the festival, and are
interested in seeing each artist's perspective on the themes of War and
Oil*. An award of $1000 USD will be given to the remix artist the jury
finds to be most deserving.
*To illustrate, here is a link to a Critical Remix Video on the theme of
War and Oil created by Diran Lyons:
