EIC 16.1 Festival Applications

EIC will be an online only festival in 2021.
May 1–22, 2021

Applications will be accepted starting August 1, 2020

Experiments in Cinema seeks new and old work that moves beyond traditional narrative, experimental, and documentary forms.

We are interested in cinema that "steps on toes", questions authority, complicates traditions, experiments with form and content, and provides us with a view into the world that we have never seen before—challenge us (if you dare)!

We are also interested in expanded cinema/ moving image projects. To submit a proposal, please e-mail a 500 word or less proposal to bkonefsky@gmail.com so we have a clear understanding of your work.

EIC 16.1 festival submissions will be accepted
August 1–November 1, 2020

The online festival supports only high resolution digital file (Quicktime, AVI, any non-proprietary codec)


EIC accepts works produced from any year, century or alternative dimension.


Individual entries are $30 each. If an artist submits 3 or more works, the entry fee is reduced to $20 per entry. We prefer payment via Paypal, but will accept checks or money orders payable in U.S. funds.


Artists submitting from outside the United States and artists whose work we have accepted to previous festivals are NOT required to pay an entry fee.
