9th Annual Chicago Anarchist Film Fest Seeks Submissions

For the 9th year the Chicago Anarchist Film Festival will present a sample of films from mainstream sources, rediscovered classics and the works of filmmakers engaged in social change with an anarchist vision. Most media of all types launch attacks that distort, discredit and deny anarchists entirely. Anarchists and their allies respond with a relentless volley of images and stories that reveal, revive and invigorate a rich anarchist presence in society.

Chicago Anarchist Film Festival organizers seek un- and under-distributed films and videos to include in the 2009 Chicago Anarchist Film Festival. We also welcome suggestions for titles that may inadvertently allow anarchy to seep through the cracks of the status quo. Movie collage, music videos and trailers for works-in-progress will also be considered.

Deadline- April 1, 2009
All entries must be submitted with an entry form. A contributors statement and any promotional material is appreciated. Please also indicate if you are available and interested in attending the festival.

Submissions should be DVD (2 copies, any zone) or vhs (pal or ntsc). It may be possible to screen 16mm as well, but we need video for purpose of review. Selection is based on time allocation, relevance, quality and resonance. There are no rewards or prizes beyond our invaluable appreciation and heartfelt thanks, but we will be collecting audience feedback which can be provided to contributors on request. All entrants will be updated on the status of their submissions. We ask the contributions be made with the anarchist spirit of community and celebration with which they will be received. Solidarity!

Shipping costs are the responsibility of the entrants. Videos will be
returned upon request. To ensure prompt return of material, please enclose $3 per submission. Otherwise material submitted to the festival will be donated to a suitable community recipient.
