festivals? about 2 years ago
Great conversation, great info. Thanks so much for sharing all this with all the lurkers (like me) too.
Jumping in because I saw Jen’s post – I was contacted by Celeste Prize via vimeo too. It was better than some of the “spam” I get on the site. It sounds interesting, but it’s 60euro? a year, to be entered for their “prizes”? Seems like just another way of getting folks to pay an entry fee to get a look. Maybe I didn’t look hard enough — maybe there is more to it?
It seems like there’s a divide between “narrative” and “experimental” and then again with “art” or “avant-garde” film/video? Does anyone have experience / interest in submitting work to galleries? Any thoughts on that?
just fyi, I’m coming from an MFA background; I avoided the gallery system for ages, out of both fear and skepticism, but now that I’ve found a medium I love (video) I’m more interested. I got to go to Art Basel with my job, and it seemed like the most interesting video and also presentation of video was/were in the gallery booths, and not so much in the designated viewing areas. But definitely in the gallery booths there was a focus on presentation (holes cut in walls, a screen surrounded by sharks teeth, a sweet old projector) and so the videos felt like objects in a way.
