JSF Editorial Board Joined by Deborah Stratman;
Academy Award Predictive Abilities Suggested

The Journal of Short Film invites you to submit your short film for
consideration in Volume 8 (Summer 2007). The deadline is fast
approaching (May 8). The JSF—a DVD quarterly published since 2005—has
an open and free submissions process. See for

This call for submissions is noteworthy because the JSF will be joined
by a guest editor for this volume. Chicago-based filmmaker Deborah
Stratman is known for her work through her production company
Pythagoras. She was a 2003 Guggenheim Fellow and was praised for her
short work In Order Not To Be Here. She recently completed Kings of
the Sky, a feature documentary about Muslim Uyghur tightrope walkers in
western China.

The Journal continues to be a leading advocate of short film and has
published 70+ filmmakers from 8 countries. The volumes continue to be
excellent and diverse collections that include narrative, documentary,
and experimental films. Among the Journal’s many phenomenal films is
one that was later nominated for an Academy Award—Éramos Pocos, by
Borja Cobeaga, was published in the summer of 2006 and nominated this
January—leading the JSF staff to consider employing their predictive
abilities next January in Vegas.
