Deadline for Submissions: Friday, May 13, 2022
Application Submission Form: https://forms.gle/7jRFmqVsi38Rm7W86
We are now accepting film/video submissions for consideration for screening in the Rendezvous With Madness Festival in a cinema context (whether on-site and/or online).
*NOTE* At this time we are planning for a hybrid festival that is both onsite and online. We will update this page should plans change. (on-site location pending)
We are currently accepting submissions of all genres, lengths/durations and forms that highlight, discuss or intersect with topics of mental health, addiction, recovery and wellness. We’re especially interested in works by creators with lived mental health and/or addictions experiences.
We screen films with connections to mental health / addictions / recovery / wellness. Your film’s relation to these topics may be direct in context or more abstract in form. We are open-minded. We aim to represent a variety of perspectives and stories. In the “additional notes” section at the end of this form be sure to tell us more about your film; such as what inspired you or expand on the larger topics that your film is about. The more info you give us about your film the better!
We encourage applications from and give priority to Workman Arts members, creators with lived mental health and/or addictions experiences, BIPOC filmmakers, 2SLGBTQIA+ creators and makers with divergent abilities.
Other important notes:
There is no fee to submit to our festival and screening fees (artist fees/film rentals) are paid for all works screened based on the length of the film.
Submissions can be received by preview link (this is preferred – you can use Vimeo, YouTube, Google drive, etc.) or via USB drive.
- No submission fees
- Artist fees / screening fees / film rentals paid for all projects presented
