Curatorial Criteria

When choosing works for exhibition and installation we consider thoughtful forms and themes, investigative / innovative / experimental approaches, production values, audience appeal, and how the piece will fit with or complement others we are considering. None of these criteria is a must; none is more important than the others; excellence in any one or two areas may be sufficient for acceptance. Art-oriented shorts under 16 minutes are strongly preferred. Short documentaries will be considered.

Note that we are not interested in simple recordings of dance on a proscenium stage — cinematic elements must be an integral part of the entry.
