Daughters of Joy! Film + Video Festival
(Still from Maya Deren's "At Land" has nothing to do with festival, other than we like the picture)
Calling all artists, fallen women, playboys, rakes, trollops and strumpets! Arm yourselves with a camera and submit your lascivious, libidinous and salacious motion picture creations to Lickety Split smut zine’s first ever Daughters of Joy! Film and Video Festival.
Lickety Split smut zine, Montreal’s own pansexual and sex-positive smut zine, is interested in promoting film and video that chooses to be forthright and frank in their explorations of gender and sexuality. We believe it is important to showcase artwork by different and brave artists in order to offer radical suggestions regarding the nature of difference and desire. Daughters of Joy! Film and Video Festival will be inaugurated at the launch of Lickety Split #4 in Montreal (Quebec), February 2007.
We encourage everyone to explore their own unique perspective on the intersection of sexuality / gender / eroticism. Members of traditionally disadvantaged groups are encouraged to submit. We encourage submissions from transgender people. This festival is free-to-submit and non-competitive.
- Submissions must be DVD or VHS format.
- Accepted screening formats include 16mm, Super 8 and miniDV
- Max length 15 minutes
- Tell us about your film and yourself and anything else you think we’d like to know about
- Include your name and contact information
- Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you want submissions returned
- Submission deadline: January 15th, 2007.
