100 Second Festival
deadline MAY 1st
Summer Screening 2006
The 100 Second Festival is an open ended motion media extravanganza. We are seeking media makers from all skill levels and backgrounds to test the creative constraint of 100 seconds. There’s no entrance fee, come on in, the front door is wide open! The submissions will be reviewed, posted and hosted in an online archive. The best of these submissions will be packaged, promoted and projected as the 100 Second Festival.
Since the beginning of time people have been making 100 second works, there just wasn’t a festival that recognized their greatness. Now, any piece of motion media that is under 1 minute and 40 seconds can be considered part of this festival. The rules are very open on content. Personal narratives, music videos, youth media, digital stories, animations, documentary, found, orphan or collage work are just some of the genres. These are part of a growing catalogue of 100 second works.
Selections from this anthology are downloaded and bundled into DVDs and curated for public screenings. We hope that under a Creative Commons (Attribution – Non Commercial – Share Alike) the ability to host or screen a festival is super easy.
