Live Event – Single Channel Film Festival: Release Me
February 12 – 14, 2021
28 Howard Street, Suite 211, Burlington, VT 05401
Each year we curate a thematic film festival, and accept submissions via an open call:
Imagining or experiencing the moment or process of liberation, of deliverance from what holds you, confined or isolated, gripped in uncertainty or fear, held back by powerful forces or structures, kept apart from others, mired in confusion, dwelling in the dark.
To witness or feel this point in time in slow motion or rapid fire
To imagine it as really possible, even sustainable.
How do we imagine a world or ourselves changed after emerging from the grip of fear, solitude, anxiety, grief, oppression?
What does the other side of this prolonged condition look like ?
What occurs in the moment of release ?
