EVOLUTION, May 2007, Leeds, UK

Lumen would like to invite submissions of new films and videos for
its annual Evolution festival due to take place in May 2007.

Now in its sixth year, the Evolution festival explores avant-garde

screenings, exhibitions, retrospectives and workshops. Previous
guests have included Michael Snow, Carolee Schneemann, Takahiko
Iimura, Woody and Steina Vasulka, Tony Conrad, Vito Acconci, Rose
Lowder, Jurgen Reble, Dan Graham and many others.

The 2006 installment of Evolution saw the introduction of the
Compendium screening series, presenting new films and videos by
artists and filmmakers from around the world. Details can be found

For the 2007 Compendium screenings, we are interested in seeing films
and videos created in the last 18 months, or currently in progress.
We also welcome submissions of work that is expanded or performative
in nature.

Please send video previews (VHS, DVD or DV PAL or NTSC) to the
following address along with your contact details. For expanded or
performative works please include photographic or video documentation
along with a description to:
