Urban Nomad 2009: Looking for progressive documentaries, shorts and experimental films - Free to Submit

user
Urban Nomad is the top indie/underground film festival in Taiwan. We are looking for progressive statements in film, especially documentary, experimental film and short film. We also show a limited number of feature films every year, mostly from Greater China or south Asia. The final deadline for feature-length films (narrative or documentary) is Feb. 26, 2010. Submission is free. ...

Urban Nomad Film Fest

Urban Nomad Film Fest is the oldest and best known underground film festival in Taiwan. It was founded in Taipei in 2002, and the ongoing project is to create a community-oriented film environment and put an end to the impersonal ‘black box’ movie theater environment where hundreds of people can watch films without really interacting with each other. We tend to hold festival screenings and events in warehouses, outdoor spaces and converted spaces, rather than traditional film theaters. Peripheral events include concerts, parties, discussion seminars and directors talks.

Urban Nomad's festival content is socially motivated, growing with and out of digital and grassroots film movements: underground, alternative, digital, arthouse, DVcam, Flash, and web-based films. Our program is evenly split between Taiwanese indie shorts (open submission) and international, independent documentaries and features (feel free to contact us).
