Emergence is a curated screening of inceptive screen-based Canadian/Quebecois artworks directed by women. Canada-based artists are invited to submit their first screen-based artwork to be screened and to compete for the HTMlles 2010 Festival of Media Art + Digital Culture’s Emerging Artist Award.
Entries to the public call for submissions must be under 9 minutes in length and may consist of time-based screenable media including video art, experimental short film, animation, video performance, mixed media, etc.
Curator Annie Briard will distill an initial selection of works from submissions, to be followed by a screening for jury members comprised of artists, curators and producers.
The ten (10) semifinalist works will be selected and screened at HTMlles, competing for the audience’s vote, determining the winning work. The semi-finalist works will also be featured on the HTMlles website for additional public votes.
The winning artwork will be announced and presented at HTMlles’s closing Gala where the Artist will be publically awarded her/his prize.
Deadline: All submissions must be received by September 13, 2010, by 9:00 PM.
