I'm the messenger only - this is from Vancouver's film co-op.

Call for Submissions

Cineworks Independent Filmmakers Society is seeking submissions for
Optical Allusions, a screening of media-art works made using optical
printers, to take place on 22 January 2008. A nearly gone technology,
optical printers once dominated the field of special effects in film,
yielding such classic examples as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Star
Wars. Today, optical printers have been embraced in the realm of the
experimental. This screening will present a number of works from
local, national and international media artists whose film work has
been manipulated using optical printers. With the only optical
printer in town, Cineworks is proud to present this special event to
preface to an upcoming workshop exploring introductory optical
printer techniques for the experimental filmmaker.

Only those included within the program will be contacted. If you'd
like your submission previews returned, please include a self-
addressed, stamped return envelope.

Specifications: Shorts, up to 30 minutes.

Screening Format: DVD

Submission preview formats: DVD

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 31 December 2007. Please include a covering
letter that clearly indicates the director and their contact
information, a brief bio and description of the film [50-70 words
each], length of the work, year of completion, and the screening format.

Artist fees will be paid.
