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.

The West Virginia University School of Art and design is pleased to announce a call for entries to the 4th annual West Virginia Mountaineer Short Film Festival.

  • Re-vision Theme

The Re-vision Theme
With the Revision theme we invite works that explore ways in which notions of identity in 2013 differ from the definitions, stereotypes or associations handed down to us historically and culturally. Whether personal, social or geographic, how are current experiences and realities of our various identities at odds with the popular or historical portrayals we've grown accustomed to? How does the experience of your place, your group, your class - or even your nation - contrast with external perceptions? Is there such a thing an "authentic" representation, or a true self? If not, how does contemporary culture fashion a new experience no longer supported by former models and ideas? We invite works that reflect on these and similar questions.

Rules
Entries must have been made after January 1, 2010. $10 Entry fee per person. Maximum of 3 entries. All submissions must include a completed entry form. Please include English subtitles with all non-English narrative entries. There are no rules governing content or artistic approach.
