Its that time of year again!

Peripheral Produce's Eighth Annual Portland Documentary and eXperimental
Film Festival (PDX Fest, for short) is now accepting submissions for its
five-day exposition taking place May 6-10, 2009 in Portland, Oregon.

PDX Fest is dedicated to showcasing new and innovative work in film and
video from around the world. Focusing on non-narrative and documentary films
that goes against the grain of mainstream entertainment, the PDX Fest is
looking for artistic, underground, quirky and challenging work that reflects
contemporary culture, documents historic oddities, and is otherwise

Experimental, documentary and/or underground work of all lengths will be
considered. Exhibition formats include 35mm, 16mm, Beta SP, and DV. *Live,
multi-media and performance-based works* with a film or video emphasis are
also encouraged to submit. We are also accepting *video installation
proposals* for the festival's satellite installation exhibit. Please see
our submission guidelines
<http://www.peripheralproduce.com/pdx_fest/2009/>for complete details!
* *Early Bird Deadline: December 12, 2008*
*Final Deadline: January 23, 2009*

In the hopes of reducing the amount of waste we accumulate as a film
festival and minimizing our impact on the environment, we have greatly
simplified the submission process, paring it down to the bare essentials.
We are asking film and video entrants to send only their entry form and a
one-page description/bio along with their submissions. As much as we love
seeing everyone's groovy posters, cool DVD cases, and awesome press kits, we
ask that for the sake of our environment (and our tiny little office), that
you refrain from sending such additional materials with your entry. If your
film is selected for the festival, press materials may be requested at that
time. Ultimately this will save you time and money with a simpler, lighter
submission package to mail off, while saving us the guilt-inducing task of
recycling or throwing out (when necessary) a massive load of additional
materials come the end of the festival. Please see the entry guidelines for
the full run down on submission materials to include. Thanks in advance for
helping us out with this!

We are once again taking entry fee payments via PayPal as well as check and
money order ($1 transaction fee applies for online payments). Just look for
the buttons on the PDX 2009 page of our website!

For complete details on all submission guidelines and to download the entry
form, please head to our website
We look forward to seeing all of your work!
