Opportunity: Black Box Seattle Call For Entry

Submission Deadline: March 31, 2015

Artists from around the world are invited to submit work to BLACK BOX - the first international art, film and technology festival in Seattle. A multi-platform program of significant scope, BLACK BOX presents contemporary artists who expand the language of cinema. The festival cultivates an engaged community that thinks creatively and critically about emerging technologies and digital culture.

Core programming is nomadic and antidisciplinary, focusing on experimental film, video, new media art and moving-image-based work.

BLACK BOX 2.0 will take place from May 6 - June 7, 2015, during the 41st Seattle International Film Festival. It is organized independently by Aktionsart, a new art and technology nonprofit based in the Pacific Northwest.

A comprehensive festival program with screenings, exhibitions, artist talks, discussion panels, educational events and special presentations occurs in various locations throughout Seattle. BLACK BOX 2.0 incorporates multiple platforms - movie theaters, living rooms, galleries, museums, public spaces and shipping containers. An online channel premieres and distributes exclusive content to audiences in Seattle and beyond.
