PLEASE DISTRIBUTE WIDELY
FLEX, the Florida Experimental Film/Video Festival, is now accepting
submissions for its third biennial competitive festival taking place
February 17-22, 2009 in Gainesville, FL. The exclusive focus of the
festival is on experimental short media, but we encourage artists to
challenge us to rethink what “experimental” means. Work may draw on
documentary, animation, avant garde, underground, or other traditions
—-or no traditions at all. Cash and in-kind prizes will be awarded
in each of 4 categories (film/video, small/large). Previous jurors
have included Craig Baldwin, Naomi Uman, Mike Plante, and Tony
Gault. In addition, the festival has hosted numerous filmmakers
including Jim Trainor, Leighton Pierce, Deborah Stratman, Bill Brown,
Jim Finn, Robert Todd, and Scott Stark.
Entry form and guidelines available at <www.flexfest.org>. The
regular entry deadline is October 1, but we encourage early submission.
Regular--$10 (postmark by October 1)
Late--$20 (postmark by November 1)
No entry fee for festival alumni or for international entries.
