2008 ATA Film & Video Festival: Call For Entries
The Artists’ Television Access center in San Francisco, one of the premiere alternative screening houses in the country, is now accepting submissions for their 3rd annual ATA Film & Video Festival. Last year’s fest was a real doozy. You can read up on the Underground Film Journal’s review of most of the short films that screened and then check out a nice photo gallery of the festivities to see what they’re all about.
ATA screens films in video, Super 8 and 16mm, but the catch is that your film can’t run more than 20 minutes. Anything more than that won’t be accepted. And if you check out the reviews, you’ll see that they do accept a wide range of avant garde and experimental films and videos. Also, one of the films that screened, Martin Hansen’s Paradise Drift, was a runner-up to the Underground Film Journal’s 2008 Movie of the Year pick.
There’s also a couple of special upcoming events surrounding the ATA center and the film festival itself, but I’ll announce them in separate posts in the coming days. Be on the lookout!
