OPEN VIDEO PROJECTS
BLUEROOM

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS


Blueroom (www.blue-room.it) is a collective dedicated to producing and
promoting all forms of media experimentation including electronic music,
video, sound art, and cinematic exploration. Blueroom organizes a weekly
evening of audio-visual interaction at Rialtosantambrogio, a cultural
center in Rome's historic district. Featuring a dynamic mix of live
experimental electronic music, a rotating DJ line-up, live video-mixing,
site-specific video installations and 3500 cm2 (a weekly exhibition of
poster art specially designed by a contemporary artist for free
distribution at the event), Blueroom has become a vital component of
Roman
nightlife. The overwhelming public interest has brought an average
weekly
attendance of more than 800 guests.

This season, Blueroom kicks off with a new program, Open Video Projects,
dedicated to developing an international network of artists working with
film and video. All artists working in these media are invited to submit
work to be part of Open Video Projects.  All submitted materials will be
evaluated for inclusion; however, only selected pieces will be screened
as
part of the Blueroom evening. Lorenzo Benedetti, Sarra Brill, Andrew
Cappetta and Adrienne Drake are responsible for the selection of all
video
entries and will curate the weekly programming. Submitted materials will
be collected in a searchable database and accessible on the program's
website, www.openvideoprojects.org. In addition to the database, the
site
will also feature a program guide, screening times, and links to the
websites of participating artists (if provided). The same information
will
also be posted on the Blueroom site, www.blue-room.it.
