We understand the financial constraint of making films and the costs involved in submitting to Festivals. However, we also feel that submitting free does not help anyone as it takes the seriousness out.

In some exceptional cases when working with partner organizations, we offer discount waivers to individuals filmmakers who are members of these partner organizations.

About: The mission of the festival is to spotlight filmmakers and their films that tackle the social and environmental issues of the day without relying on gratuitous violence, special effects, loud soundtracks and sensationalism to draw in an audience. The festival supports its filmmakers beyond the weeklong festival, as it showcases the selection films in other venues and at the Cannes Film Festival Doc Corner.

From their call: Residency 108 invites emerging and established artists, writers and thinkers of all disciplines to immerse themselves in their creative practice. We particularly welcome those who work with nature, ecology and the installation of temporary outdoor land-art works. The residency is free apart from the cost of travel and material expenses which must be assumed by the individual.

Two four week-long residencies are offered each year, one during the month of October and one in May. The program accommodates three artists at a time. Each resident is provided with a room, working facilities and a weekly stipend for food, participants are responsible for cooking their own meals. Each resident will be asked to present their work during the residency and weekly critiques are held as a group, sometimes with a visiting critic.

The program takes place on 108 acres of pastoral land which was used as a horse farm in the last century. The property features rolling hills, mowed paths, meadows, densely wooded forests, wetlands with a few ponds of varying size and a seasonal stream. In addition to these ecosystems a variety of native plant species host habitats for birds, reptiles and amphibians. Frequent visitors include coyotes, deer and wild turkeys. The barn is home to chickens, sheep, horses, goats, cats, a cow and a pig. There is also a private residence on the property, which is not available for use by residents.

The residency is located in a remote area; the closest village is a 7-minute drive or 25-minute bike ride. There is no public transportation in the area, and we do not have a vehicle available for resident use apart from a bike. We do however provide weekly trips to shop for supplies and food. Our program is ideal for artists who wish to engage with the landscape and prefer isolation to interaction. If you require constant contact with “civilization” this may not be the program for you.

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, Call for Entries: SPECTRUM/Exploring Gender Identification

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, Call for Entries: SPECTRUM/Exploring Gender Identification

Deadline: July 29th, 2018

This juried exhibition brings to the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA) Gallery 51 a reflection and conversation on the gender continuum—exploring cultural and social issues of gender roles, norms and identification.

Because we all deal with issues of gender and sexuality, we hope to show work from a variety of perspectives across and beyond the spectrum. With work that examines masculinity, femininity and gender identifications between and outside of this binary. Numerous artists have used their work to examine, question, confront and criticize the relationships between gender and society.

The construction of gender roles informs a broad and fluid range of identities, such as heterosexuality, lesbianism, homosexuality, transsexuality, intersexuality, bisexuality, pansexuality, genderqueer, and being transgender or cisgender, among others, thus becoming an act of freedom, diversity and individual expression. An individual’s identity is comprised of a multitude of intersecting factors, including gender, race, ethnicity, ability, class and orientation. Many people now prefer to use the plural word “identities” emphasizing multiplicity, fluidity and change throughout one’s life. This exhibition turns to the ability of artists to confront the status quo and challenge cultural standards, providing a framework for discussion and change through visual arts.

Eligibility: MCLA Gallery 51 strives to offer exhibition opportunities to both established and emerging artists in all mediums. For selected artists or projects, MCLA Gallery 51 provides the location, installation and marketing for the duration of the exhibit. The Artist is responsible for the cost of delivering or shipping the work to the gallery and return shipping to the artist. All 2D work must be received framed and/or ready for installation.

Exhibitions Dates: September 27th – November 18th, 2018, opening reception Thursday September 27th, 2018 from 5pm – 8pm

Jurors: Arthur De Bow, Curator MCLA Gallery 51; Erika Wall, Owner Gallery 6/67 Santa Ana, CA; Kieran Swann Arnolfini Programme Manager, Bristol UK

For more detailed information and link to apply: https://mcla.submittable.com/submit

About: MCLA Gallery 51, run by the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts since 2005, exhibits work from a wide range of contemporary artists. The gallery is located in downtown North Adams, 2 blocks from MASS MoCA, and hosts 8-10 exhibitions each year and countless events and happenings.

Colorado Photographic Arts Center, International Call for Entries: Lies

PrintColorado Photographic Arts Center, International Call for Entries: Lies

Deadline: July 6th, 2018, midnight MST

From their call: Photography has a complex relationship to truth that leads all the way back to the invention of the medium. Our current culture adds to the immediacy of trickery, with claims of fake news and polarizing viewpoints, even without imagery to back it up – and what would an image prove anyway?  From spirit photography to digital manipulation, photography has had to battle with an image that includes both reality and deception. For this juried exhibit, the Colorado Photographic Arts Center is inviting you to explore themes related to lies and the effect that misinformation has on our culture. Maybe by exploring work that talks about the prevalence of lies, we will find important truth about ourselves.

Eligibility: Entry is open to regional, national, and international artists, members and non-members of CPAC. All lens-based media are eligible, including but not limited to images made by film or video camera, scanner, screen-capture, digital camera, and any means of mobile photography..

Juror: Richard McCabe has worked within the curatorial department of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art since 2005 and was named its curator of photography in 2010. He has taught photography at Pratt Institute in New York City, Fairfield University in Connecticut, Montclair State University in New Jersey, and Xavier in New Orleans. His photographs, paintings, drawings, and installation art have been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums throughout the United States. In 2017, Aint – Bad press published LAND STAR a monograph of McCabe’s photography.
