Artists' Television Access in San Francisco are currently calling for works of "Video, Super 8 and 16 mm animation, documentary, narrative, abstract, found footage based and other works". There maximum duration is twenty minutes and the postmarked deadline is May 29, 2009.
The 4th Annual ATA Film & Video Festival takes place in October 2009. I've been neglecting to put all these recent festival deadline up onto my Google calendar but will make amends and do it tonight. I've currently been swept up editing a film on mental health I shot in collaboration with performance artist Frank Baressi. We've been plumbing the depths of contextual performance in video, and narrative nuances through-out. The work is called "Fuck Trust". Anyway back to ATA.
So what is ATA all about? This is what they have to say about ATA on the ATA website.
"Since the early '80s, Artists' Television Access has provided equipment, education, and a screening venue for independent film and video to artists and the community in San Francisco's Mission District. Our mission is to bring the tools of the mass media within reach."
