Call For Entries: Glitch v. Scratch – deadline 10 September 2011 #digitalart

Call For Entries #4: Glitch v. Scratch
Deadline: September 10th 2011
Screening: TBA (Late September, Early October)

The MisALT Screening Series is currently accepting submissions for it’s next screening: “Scratch v. Glitch.” We seek to create a dialog between Scratch Cinema (film based practices that make physical interventions on the celluloid level) and Glitch based video and media practices (which manipulate images by exploiting vulnerabilities on the molecular and electron level of video tape and code). While on the surface these practices appear contradictory, with one being concentrating on the materiality of film and the other focusing on the malleability of data they both share a concern with manipulating their respective mediums on what is arguably their basest level.

We are primarily interested in short to mid-length works (0-45minutes) but will consider work of longer durations and we are currently capable of exhibiting pieces on DVD, VHS, Super-8mm, 8mm, 16mm, or as digital files.

To submit please fill out the submission form (available at and either send it along with a preview DVD, artist statement, and project description to:
