Submissions should be experimental works of film or video that are 15 minutes or less and utilize moving images as a means to poetic expression, formal exploration, or abstract and open-ended narratives. Compelling, personal works that push the boundaries of cinematic convention will also be considered for publication.

Submit film or video works as Vimeo or YouTube links and include any passwords required for viewing. Works accepted for publication will require an .MP4 or .MOV file that will be uploaded and hosted on Aquifer’s YouTube channel long term.

There are no requirements for year of completion or premiere status, but please note these videos will be available to the public online for an extended period of time. We recommend entries be works that have completed any intended festival screenings and do not have plans for future distribution.

Please ensure that you have the right to use and share all film and video content before submitting. Please note that before publishing any work, we will ask for a signed publication agreement that confirms you have acquired permission for use of any visual, auditory, or other work not your own included in your film or video, and that you accept full responsibility for doing so.
