MYCO FILM FESTIVAL 2023
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Founded in 1962 by the visionary multidisciplinary artist John Cage, New York Mycological Society has had a long relationship with the arts. Over the past decade there has been an efflorescence of visual work, including film and video, on the mycological world. We are excited to announce the first NYMS Myco Film Festival scheduled for October 2023 at an arthouse cinema in New York City and streaming online in a virtual film fest later in Oct. 2023. We will showcase the fascinating world of mycology and provide a platform for looking at and thinking of mycology in bold new ways (beyond popular culture’s limited fixation on magic mushrooms).
IN-PERSON FESTIVAL DATE: One day screening, October 2023
VIRTUAL FILM FEST (optional participation): late October 2023
We welcome all submissions from members and non-members alike, even if you are a first time filmmaker, as long as the film is about mushrooms or mycology. We accept any length from 1 minute to feature length and any genre, including fiction, documentary, animation and experimental. Films with non-English voiceover should be titled in English.
* Morel deadline (Early): May 31, 2023
* Chanterelle deadline (Final): July 1, 2023
Submission fee: Free
Notification Date for Selection: by July 15, 2023 (if selected we will need a signed release form to screen your film)
Final screener deadline: must be received by August 31, 2023 (format details confirmed upon selection notification)
If you have any questions, please email the film festival organizer Maya at email@example.com
We are looking forward to seeing your work! So SUBMIT YOUR FILM HERE!
