Serial Box Video Festival
Serial Box Projects seeks submissions for the second installment of its ongoing silent video festival. Materials must be received by Sept. 21, 2011.
The “Serial Box Video Festival” is an intermittent public exhibition in downtown Columbia, MO, organized with support from the University of Missouri. Videos are rear projected onto the plate-glass window of a one-story street-facing building at night, glowing and accessible to viewers and passersby. A scrolling LED and/or monitor(s) can be displayed in the bottom corner of the window for text or secondary videos. All videos are displayed without sound.
Each festival installment opens with a group screening of all selected entries. In the following weeks, individual videos are given at least one solo screening, in which the video plays on a loop.
Please send videos and/or proposals to:
Nathan Boyer and Anne Thompson
