OPEN VIDEO PROJECTS
OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Season 2
 
 

Open Video Projects (OVP) is a video archive currently based in Rome, Italy which facilitates screenings throughout the city in conjunction with a weekly appointment at the Blueroom evening at Rialto Santambrogio, a contemporary cultural center in Rome's historic district; Blueroom features 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).  There has been overwhelming public response with over 1000 guests in attendance each week. (www.blue-room.it).  OVP’s participation in large scale cultural events exposes the public to work it would normally not see, as well as provides a unique form of visibility for the participating artists and filmmakers.

 

 

For its second season of screenings Open Video Projects is looking to expand its international network of artists working with film and video. All artists working in these media are invited to submit work to be part of OVP.  All submitted materials will be evaluated for inclusion, however, only selected pieces will be screened. Lorenzo Benedetti and Sarra Brill are responsible for the selection of all video entries and will curate the weekly selections. All submitted materials will be collected in a searchable database, accessible on the program's website, www.openvideoprojects.org  In addition to the database, the site will feature a program guide, screening times, and links to

websites of participating artists and filmmakers (if provided).

We like to, but within limits -- if they're plain-vanilla ASCII text only,
yes; if they're JPEGs and MS Word documents, no. Nettime is an old-school
mailing list.

Cheers,
