Saturday, June 18th, 2016

7:30pm - 9pm

The Front invites video artists to submit short videos, ten minutes or less, to our 2nd annual shorts film festival, Digital Network. Selected works will be screened in a 90 minute program format. All exhibiting artists will be included in the video festival catalog as well as an online archive. One work will receive a $200 prize for best in show.


We invite artists to submit videos that visually or conceptually deal with this year’s theme Digital Networks. We live in a contemporary sphere where many people are connected through social networks, and a person’s identity can be traced through their virtual trail of web-surfing breadcrumbs. The Front is interested in the way artists may take the aesthetics of social media webs, the entanglement of internet content, and the non-linear properties of hypermedia and incorporate them into video art works.

Important Dates:

  • Submission Deadline: May 4th, 2016
  • Notification of Selected Videos: June 1st, 2016
  • Deadline for selected artists to send us video files: June 8th, 2016
  • Film Festival: Saturday, June 18th, 2016, 7:30 - 9pm
