Independent Exposure 2004 - 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
800 artists from all over the world. Beyond the San Francisco and Houston
screenings, Independent Exposure also has been presented hundreds of times
in 42 countries plus Palestine and Antarctica.
2004 is the ninth 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 Axiom Theatre in Houston, TX. We want to show your
work to audiences throughout the world, so please submit your work(s) now.
Independent Exposure - Call for Works and Distribution through Exhibition
For our Independent Exposure compilation series we accept short video, film
and digital-media submissions of 15 minutes or less and are currently
looking for narrative, humorous, dramatic, animation, documentary,
experimental, alternative, avant-garde, music videos, erotic, gay/lesbian,
and underground works.
SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: NO DEADLINE NO FORMS
Please submit a VHS (NTSC, PAL, or SECAM), mini-DV (NTSC only) or DVD (NTSC
only) clearly labeled with name, title, length, phone-number and email.
There is now a US$5.00 entry fee PER FILM 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
including photos! (preferably in digital format). Due to the large amount
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!
