Eligibility:

Submissions are DUE JULY 25 / 11:59 PM PST 

Thank you for your interest in exhibiting at Aggregate Space Gallery (ASG). We are pleased to announce our Fifth Annual International Short Film Festival. In our ongoing effort to present unique and challenging art experiences to the public, ASG is proud to launch this continued celebration of non-commercial and experimental animation. Animation, as a subset within video art, is unique in its versatility as a communicative artform and its magical ability to place viewers inside adjacent realities. It is a medium without rules or restrictions, and its content can address ideas as simple or as complex as the animator intends.

We will be accepting films from 2 - 25 minutes of length in the categories of narrative and non-narrative. Animations of all styles, digital and analog, will be considered. Submissions are DUE JULY 25 / 11:59 PM PST. You will receive an email from our team regarding your submission in early August.

During the presentation of the program, audiences will be rating each film based on

Most seductive

Best Technique

Best Sound Design

Best in Show

Each winner will be included in our award ceremony next to the juror’s awards for Narrative and Non-narrative films. This year, our Award Ceremony will take place either online or in-person and will include screenings of a film by each of the jurors, the viewer’s choice awards, and the juror’s top 2 films, and an honorable mention from each category.

The films and their presenters will be publicly announced via social media once the decisions have been made. Also to be announced are the identities of the jurors, who will come from last year's Animation Festival winners scene. It's a short turnaround, so spread the word and get your submissions in ASAP.

There is a required submission fee of $20

*** WE WILL EVALUATE ONLY ONE SUBMISSION PER PERSON ***

Eligibility:

GearBox Gallery invites submissions to our 2021 juried exhibition, Hierarchy.

Hierarchy is a system that ranks people or things according to importance or power. (1) Social and racial hierarchies are systems of stratification based on the belief that some groups of people are superior to others based on a variety of attributes such as gender, identity, race, ethnicity, religion and social class. Movements such as Black Lives Matter and MeToo continue to draw attention to perceived racial and gender hierarchy, addressing systemic racism and gender discrimination. (2) Hierarchy may be applied to ecology and how the interaction of living things maintain a natural balance or how its imbalance may lead to the emergence of a pandemic and even global climate change. (3) Maslow's hierarchy of needs addresses psychological needs. On a personal level we generally prioritize our daily actions, relationships and decisions in some type of order or sequence, and prioritize the value of a wide array of materials and commodities based on strength, rarity or perceived desirability. (4) As artists our work reflects our values and how we respond to societal and personal systems. The work also speaks to our personal hierarchy with regard to the materials and moves that we make to best express those values and feelings.
