 Experimenta 2013

 

Experimenta – the International festival of Moving Image Art in India seeks artists’ films and videos from any country that challenge popular and conventional modes of cinema. Abstract to obscure compositions produced on the margins of contemporary screen-culture are welcome. Innovative, cutting edge and non-traditional work that attempts to aesthetically extend the parameters of the mediums of film and video is encouraged.

Preview copies must be submitted for selection purposes. All lengths of film are considered. Please submit entries as soon as possible. The final deadline for receipt of submissions is 30 August 2013. The festival programme will be finalised by October 2013, at which time only those whose works are selected will be informed.

 

EXPERIMENTA is a curated film festival, and will be held from November 27 – December 1, 2013 in Bangalore India.
