Shorts Members’ Screening 2018

Submit a short video for our annual Members’ Screening!

SCREENING | 22 November, 7:00 p.m. at Forth (171 McDermot Ave)

Shorts are short pants. How short? Less than the length of your legs. Longer than a belt? PLATFORM Shorts is a screening of short video works. How Shorts? Less than five minutes. Longer than 0 seconds?

PLATFORM Centre is excited to announce our yearly Members’ Screening, “Shorts”, and we want you to be a part of it. The screening will take place 22 November, 7:00 p.m., at Forth (171 McDermot Ave). Last year’s event was a huge success, featuring our members’ outrageous films, touching videos, serene animations, disturbing movies and more.

Submit your work! As long as you’re a member (which is easy, see below) we’ll show your work, but please keep in mind there are limited spots. Make sure you let us know you’d like to participate. Even if you don’t have something, but want to, and plan to make something, let us know! We’ll save you a slot.

As a bonus, Video Pool’s distribution manager Jennifer Smith will be on hand to answer questions if you’re curious about distribution possibilities for your work. Thanks to Jennifer and Video Pool, a few of the video works screened last year went on to screenings all around the world!
