West Virginia Mountaineer Short Film Festival


The Warner Theater

Established in 2010, The West Virginia Mountaineer Short Film Festival celebrates exceptional, compelling, original and innovative works in film, video and animation. Its primary mission is to help foster creative approaches to these media and to expose West Virginia University students and the surrounding Morgantown community to the world of independent filmmaking. The festival also strives to highlight issues and themes that help define contemporary culture and experience in West Virginia and the surrounding Appalachian region. The West Virginia Mountaineer Short Film Festival invites submissions in the categories of narrative film & video, documentary, animation and experimental works.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: THE 5TH ANNUAL WEST VIRGINIA MOUNTAINEER SHORT FILM FESTIVAL

The West Virginia University School of Art and Design is accepting entries to the 5th annual West Virginia Mountaineer Short Film Festival. We seek independent, unique and compelling work in film, experimental video and animation. All interested artists, filmmakers, multimedia enthusiasts are encouraged to submit work for consideration. Student submissions are also encouraged.
Send us your work! http://www.mountaineerfilmfest.org/

Categories

  • Documentary Short
  • Narrative Short
  • Animation/ Experimental
  • Student (College)
  • Young Filmmakers (Under 18)
  • “Escape”  Theme

The “Escape” Theme
This year, we have established a thematic category for works that explore issues relating to the theme of escape. Whether it’s daydreaming, getting away from stress or pain, or finding a productive response to boredom, human beings seem hardwired to seek various forms of escape. Advances in science and technology have amplified this pursuit, allowing us to travel to the farthest corners of the globe in the course of a day or be fully immersed in our virtual existences at the click of a button.

However, it becomes clear that the positive or negative connotations of escape are truly in the eye of the beholder, as one person’s playful loosening of responsibilities or breaking of boundaries becomes another person’s self-absorbed fantasy. What is propelling us towards these modes of escape? How do ideas of escape manifest themselves historically in art, music, and cinema, and how has the notion of escape changed in our contemporary era? We invite works that reflect on these and similar questions
