Deep ASCII Won't Qualify


Artists who create moving image art for the internet can enter their work into the Sundance Online Film Festival, which in turn feeds into the (offline) Sundance Film Festival. Open to all formats (e.g. Flash, film, analog/digital video, animation, etc.), entries, due in September 12, must be less than 20 minutes in length, in English or featuring English sub-titles. Starting in December, juries will grant awards across Animation, New Form, Short Form and Gallery genres, and online audiences will vote to distribute other prizes. Two caveats -- there is a submission fee -- and if your work is currently screening online, it's not eligible: Sundance is looking for projects that have not previously been available to the public. I suppose that means hacked dupes of the Matrix won't be in the running. -- Rachel Greene
