Open Call for Short Films and Animation

There are still a couple of spots left for the second online exhibition of “Tune in to Green”. If you have a project that features nature and is 5 minutes or less, see the poster below. We have artist talks and help promote your work on social media. Some artists will also receive a small gift for helping us increase viewership. We assist those who have quality footage, but do not have editing tools, for example if you shot your footage in FHD on your cell phone. The call is open to all styles of film making – experimental, abstract, animated, and documentary all welcome. There is no entry fee. Our goal is to share our experiences in the out-of-doors during this time of social distancing.

Light crashed to the ground

Like a surfer by a wave

Sprinkler slammed firefly

Neighborhood hawk flies

Low, clutching a heavy load…

Grown squirrel for lunch

Mockingbird records

Texas sounds then sings them back

Even chirping frog

Yellow with brown marks

Camouflaged, still, and waiting

Sunflower spider

waiting brighter cropped
