Within, Between & Beyond
Before the closing of the exhibition Within, Between and Beyond, Midwest Mixed is excited to host a film screening at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. The screening will be inside the theater at Mia from 3:00pm to 4:30pm on Saturday October 9th.
The film selections will be curated by a review panel of volunteers from Midwest Mixed. All styles and genres of films are welcome including documentary, narrative, and animated. We encourage the length of film submissions to be no longer than 20 minutes. The theme of the screening is "identity." In your submission email include:
1. A web link with a download option of your film at a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080p.
2. The filmmakers name, ways they identify, and location.
3. A short description of the work including when it was made, a brief synopsis, and how it connects to the theme of identity.
The deadline for film submissions is September 10th at midnight. Please send any questions and film submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
The screening will be followed by a community talk back with the filmmakers.
