Location: Austin, TX
This open call offers up to 2 individual residency spots every summer over a 4 week period with the length of each residency determined by the particular interests of each applicant with a maximum of 4 weeks total.” Artists have 24/7 access to the space, are given an honorarium, and are expected to participate in MASS’s public engagement series called Close Encounters. “Open and broad, this prompt can be approached from a multitude of ways: performative, passive, or completely radical in execution or thought… [it’s] designed to provide a new way of encountering and understanding the creative process.” People from outside Austin can apply, though they’re expected to find their own transportation and housing for the month. MASS would like for artists to use this opportunity and its big gallery space to make work they otherwise wouldn’t be able to. For the record (despite the residency’s name), the space is air-conditioned.

5th Annual Short Shorts
Location: White Space Gallery, Atlanta
How do you decide something is truly art? You can say anything that encourages a lively discussion is art. Or anything that sells is art. Or it can be your own personal opinion. In the existential age, it is accepted that the individual – not society or religion – is solely responsible for giving meaning to life and living it passionately and “authentically.” These conclusions on truth and authenticity permeate every fiber of our culture, from advertising to intimacy, from politics to sense perception.
Whitespace Gallery calls for short short films (8 min or less) that address truth. Genres accepted include documentary, narrative or experimental. Some topics that might be addressed include constructive ambiguity, objectivity, predictive histories, perception management, parallel space, brainwashing, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, fact-checking, self-confirming feedback loops, psychedelic consciousness, post-political governments, causality and correlation, managed outcomes, Bayesian belief networks, reframing the narrative, optics, non-linear warfare, shape shifting, hypernormalization, and simplify, revise, over-simplify. The show will be curated by filmmaker, Ruth Dusseault.
SUBMIT YOUR FILM: Film Freeway, WithoutABox, and FestHome
DEADLINE: July 23rd
