2023 Feminist Border Arts Film Festival Call for Submissions

Gender and Sexuality Studies at New Mexico State University is calling for submissions to its 2023 Feminist Border Arts Film Festival, which is happening on June 28, 2023 at the University Art Museum. 

The Feminist Border Arts Film Festival celebrates the power of cinema as a creative tool to reflect upon urgent social issues and thought-provoking representations of identity and difference. The festival defines “feminist border arts” as a practice that challenges the limits of conventional representation through telling stories from the edge; threshold visions from the margins that create new ways of seeing, that visualize underrepresented ways of knowing. Selected films revive the promise of cinema, the possibility of film, video arts, and new media to open minds, create new vistas, and challenge dehumanizing forms of representation.

Interested persons are to submit a15 minute or less short film or video that addresses topics associated with women, gender, LGBTQIA+, social justice and transformation, transnational and global understanding and awareness

Deadline for submissions is April 15, 2023.
