Did you miss the gratuity at The International Film Festival in Chicago? Did it catch the 3:39 back to New York?

Well that’s only because gratuity is soon off for a jaunt in Germany at the UMAO Festival. This festival looks like a big ol’ bomb of nerd art meets DJ fantasy complete with sound workshops and a final art battle on the closing night and hell yes….we wish we could be there. However, we are currently in the trenches mixing up a cauldron of madness for a super spectacular night at Surreal Estate this Halloween! Look out for the trailer at the end of the week!

Here’s a sneak peak at UMAO Fest from last year: http://www.uamo.info/cms/index.php?page=video

Check out the full line up here: https://gratuitousart.com/press-event/upcoming-events/

A terrific collab with our buddy CineGraphic (aka Eric Krasner) will be screening in the one minute competition at The Chicago International Film Fest!

Our interpretation of “The Human Condition” will be showing, Sunday 10/10 at 12pm at AMC River East.

Read more about the theme below and check all the amazingness at this year’s festival!: http://www.chicagofilmfestival.com/

The Human Condition:

With “The Human Condition”, we are bringing back a tradition, begun at the 4th Chicago International Film Festival in 1968, of presenting a unique competition. We challenge filmmakers from around the world to use the medium of film to address a particular question, concept, or issue in one minute. This year, we turn to the creative filmmakers of the word to explore “The Human Condition”. Filmmakers of all ages are invited to conceive, design, and produce an original 60 second film that examines who and what we are.

The human condition – is it describable? What causes people to start a war? Grow a flower? Abide poverty? Create Art? Advance technology? Pollute the environment? Seek knowledge? Cure illness? Is there a difference between cause and effect, symptom and disease? What is our place in the world? What makes us who we are?


Attempt to curtail your enthusiasm until 7pm! And don’t miss GAF at 2pm tomorrow!

If you are in Bulgaria (and who isn’t?) Check out Videoholica 2010! Many amazing videos including our own!

http://www.videoholica.org/

VIDEOHOLICA ASSOCIATION is a non-profit organization based in Varna, Bulgaria working in the organization, realization, support, establishment and development of diverse contemporary art and cultural interventions in Bulgaria and abroad trough the collaboration with local, national and international cultural partners.

Bringing together and collaborating with artists, curators, art critics and other art professionals from all around the world, VIDEOHOLICA ASSOCIATION becomes a medium, where art-involved people, institutions and initiatives communicate and exchange ideas and experience.

The main activity of the VIDEOHOLICA ASSOCIATION covers the organization and realization of the VIDEOHOLICA International Video Art Festival.

VIDEOHOLICA festival is designed as video art forum with international participation to present to the audience of Varna a remarkable and highly valuable programme of video art works.

VIDEOHOLICA festival is an initiative driven by Videoholica Association with involvement of experienced European video and film operators (commercial and non-commercial) providing wide range of audio-visual services and operating on international basis. Each has a unique role and experience to bring to the partnership realization.

VIDEOHOLICA festival includes organization and presentation of a series of video art projections and exhibitions as well as discussions and workshops concerning video art topics in traditional gallery spaces in Varna and also in nontraditional outdoor public spaces, virgin for contemporary art environment, or where it is less known.

The festival addresses the professional public as well as that auditorium, which has had no contact with contemporary art until now, and provokes both audiences through organized art activities to look for new meaning and identity amidst creative environment unknown to them so far.

VIDEOHOLICA festival presents art works by well-known artists as well as renders opportunity to young artists, who are working in the field of contemporary art and are pursuing innovative practices in a professional manner, to manifest their works distinguished for their original creative language.

“There’s a certain irony of holding a digital festival in a rural town like Narrowsburg where cell phones still receive only spotty reception,” states Tina Spangler of the organizing committee for DIGIT. “But, this quiet atmosphere creates a comfortable environment in which local residents and visiting artists alike can come together to examine the ways digital technology impacts our everyday lives.”

The seventh annual DIGIT digital media exposition kicks off Friday, June 18 from 7–9 p.m. with a double opening reception of Conrad Gleber’s video installation “Four Walls / Four Seasons” at Alliance Gallery and “Alternate Reality” video screenings and installations in Loft Gallery at 37 Main Street in Narrowsburg, NY. Both exhibitions will remain on display through July 10.

DIGIT is proud to host several visiting artists and their innovative works, including Thomas Zummo’s digital art displays revealing brand new technologies such as augmented reality and laser graffiti; Ivan Martinez’s “Running Man” projections from a flatbed truck on Main Street; Mat Rappaport’s video and Morse code over the Delaware River titled “currents,” Owen Mundy’s projected installation “The Consequence of Scale,” and “Beloved River: The Portal Form” by DIGit founder Patrick Carullo.

Narrowsburg Roasters will once again host “Java with the Geniuses” an open and free discussion for anyone to ask technical questions—from how to download a picture to how to start a website—on Saturday, June 19 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Next door at the Arts Center, a series of workshops will explore topics including Conrad Gleber’s “Using Microsoft’s Photosynth” and Ron Littke’s “Videotoons” animation workshops for kids 3–12 years old.

The “Quick and Gritty” video slam returns, inviting artists of all skill levels to make their own 3-minute digital movie. In what has become a festival favorite event, the short videos are screened on Sunday, June 20 at 12 p.m, at “video slam” at the Tusten Theatre. A jury of judges will award a $500 grand prize.

Sponsored by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance, DIGIT encourages creative and technical excellence and experimentation among individual artists and small groups working with digital tools. The event is funded in part by a grant from the Electronic Media and Film Program of the New York State Council on the Arts.
