MisALT: Glitch v. Scratch
Deadline: September 10th 2011
Screening: TBA (Late September, Early October)
Screening Series is currently accepting submissions for it’s next screening: “Scratch v. Glitch.” We seek to create a dialog between Scratch Cinema (film based practices that make physical interventions on the celluloid level) and Glitch based video and media practices (which manipulate images by exploiting vulnerabilities on the molecular and electron level of video tape and code). While on the surface these practices appear contradictory, with one being concentrating on the materiality of film and the other focusing on the malleability of data they both share a concern with manipulating their respective mediums on what is arguably their basest level.
We are primarily interested in short to mid-length works (0-45minutes) but will consider work of longer durations and we are currently capable of exhibiting pieces on DVD, VHS, Super-8mm, 8mm, 16mm, or as digital files.
