Video Fever 2021, Co-presented with Vtape
CALLING ALL STUDENTS!
Trinity Square Video is seeking video works from undergraduate or graduate level students, who are currently enrolled at an Ontario-based post-secondary institution! Selected works will be part of two online screenings taking place online on Friday, 14 May 2021. One of these screenings will be enhanced using audio description.
This is a professional, juried screening. All chosen artists will receive an IMAA screening fee and a free one-year production membership to Trinity Square Video. One selected winner will also receive a $500 cash prize sponsored by Vtape.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 31 March 2021.
Submissions must be single channel videos, under 10 minutes in length and will be selected for screening by the Video Fever jury. Videos will be judged according to artistic merit and technical intention: we are looking for works that offer conceptual and formal innovations in their investigation into video as a critical medium.
- More than one entry per artist is permitted.
- All genres of video are accepted, but this is a contest for video artists, and emphasis will be given to innovative uses of medium, genre or content.
- All entries must include a completed submission form sent to us by email.
- Please do not send supplementary material. We only require the video and completed submission form.
- Creation date of work must be 2020 or 2021.
- Videos must be under 10 minutes and single channel only.
OPTIONAL MENTORSHIP AWARD:
We will also be awarding three artists with a mentorship award, which will include $500 in TSV credit for production and post-production gear rentals, as well as access to mentorship from select staff members at both TSV and Vtape. These meetings will be tailored to the needs of the artist and can include discussions about video distribution or technical supervision and critique for a specific video/new media project.
If you would like to apply for the optional mentorship award, please fill out the field titled “Optional Mentorship Award” in the application form with a short description of your artistic practice or a proposed project.Share
