I Am The Bridge Call for Submissions

This event is produced by the City of Saskatoon in partnership with PAVED Arts.

This call is open to all Saskatoon-based video, film or media artists.
Submissions must be received by Friday, August 29 at 5pm.

We are looking for short video or film works to be screened as a part the 2014 Culture Days festivities: Saturday, September 27th at 8pm. Selected works will be projected onto the west facing pier of the Senator Sid Buckwold (Idylwyld) Bridge, visible from the west side of the South Saskatchewan River. On-site video projector and audio speakers will be assembled for the screening.

The theme for this screening asks us to consider the “bridge” in either a literal or metaphorical sense, widely interpreted as an expressive, psychological, architectural or formal content. Short video pieces made in specific relation to this call will be considered alongside of older works that fit the general thematic tone. This will be an open event, free to the public and ALL AGES. Screening fees will be paid for those works selected.

All interested artists should apply with the following:

– Accepted support material format: NTSC (Quicktime file, .mov) on a Data DVD, must be in ISO cross-platform (Windows or Mac) format.
– 8 mm and 16mm Film works are welcome but must be transferred to video and submitted in the above format.
– Works of 15 minutes or less will be considered.
– Vimeo or Youtube link submissions are welcome.
– A short artist statement about your video piece (not to exceed 500 words).

Email submissions should include a “dropbox” link, or other large file transfer service, for sending quicktime support material. Please send your submission to: artistic(at)pavedarts(dot)ca

Data-DVD discs may be sent to: I Am The Bridge
