Aggregate Animated Shorts | Fourth Annual International Short Film Festival

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, June 28, 2020

Fourth Annual International Short Film Festival
Submissions are DUE JUNE 28 20 / 11:59 PM PST
ASG is pleased to announce their “Fourth Annual International Animated Short Film Festival.”

In the ongoing effort to present unique and challenging art experiences to the public, Aggregate Space Gallery is proud to launch this celebration of non-commercial and experimental animation. Animation, as a subset within video art, is unique in its versatility as a communicative form and its ability to place viewers inside adjacent realities. It is a medium without rules or restrictions, and its content can address ideas as simple or as complex as the animator intends.

ASG will be accepting films from 2 – 25 minutes of length in the categories of narrative and non-narrative. Animations of all styles, digital and analog, will be considered. Submissions are DUE JUNE 28 / 11:59 PM PST. You will receive an email by their team regarding your submission in early July, 2020.

Due to COVID-19 and the concern for the health of ASG’s staff, artists, and audiences, this year’s festival will reshape and adjust to new online and offsite screening possibilities, where everyone can access and enjoy the videos safely. Further information will be announced as they figure out the new adaptations of how they present this important programming.

During the presentation of the program, audiences will be rating each film based on the Most seductive, Best Technique, Best Sound Design, and Best in Show, each winner will be included for their award ceremony next to the juror’s awards for Narrative and Non-narrative films. This year, the Award Ceremony will likely take place online and will include screenings of a film by each of the jurors, the viewer’s choice awards, and the juror’s top 2 films and an honorable mention from each category.

The films and their presenters will be publicly announced on ASG’s website and social media the day the viewing period opens. Also to be announced are the identities of the jurors, who will come from the San Francisco, Bay Area art and animation scene, and beyond.

There is a required submission fee of $20

*** ASG WILL EVALUATE ONLY ONE SUBMISSION PER PERSON ***
