Now Accepting Proposals: Off the Screen!

Jason and Debora Bernagozzi present the expanded cinema performance Ritual for Biological Media at the 57th AAFF.

The Ann Arbor Film Festival invites proposals for the Off The Screen! program at the upcoming 58th festival, March 24–29, 2020. We host a variety of intermedia installations, performances, and workshops—including (but not limited to) expanded and live cinema performances, new media installations, and educational salon sessions.

Please bring us your proposals for challenging and aesthetically potent works of art, and become part of a meaningful ongoing conversation about the culture of the moving image.

Expanded cinema performances could include, for example, projector experiments and live performances that interface with film or screen. New media works of all sorts are considered for display in various locations throughout Ann Arbor during the festival week, including the possibility of storefront windows, galleries, and the Michigan Theater lobby. Salon Session formats could include: lightning talks (Pecha Kucha–style brief presentations), process demos or lessons (concise “how-to” presentations by makers on technique), and moderated conversations.

The audience consists of the general public, filmmakers, writers, teachers, and film programmers. Artists are especially encouraged to propose a presentation that intentionally engages participants with material that complements the general content of the festival. For more information on the festival and its history, please visit the website.

Proposals are due October 1, 2019.
