- Video and Film Arts
Entries due June 1, 2009.
Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA) is seeking filmmakers to submit short film and/or video to a national juried competition as part of the multidisciplinary environmental series, /Material Afterlife/.
The series will feature short films along with a visual arts exhibition, workshops, lectures and other events, all referencing waste and need in society, environmental cause and effect, and/or the ideas of consumption through a cyclic approach of material use. Submitted work should encourage conversation on the topics of environmental degradation, consumerism, personal value, and frugality, as well as celebrate the significance of recycling, sustainable methods, and thrift-store culture as medium and subject matter for artists and designers.
