😞 We don't have a program for this festival yet. Would you like to help us add it?
Dear artists, if you have submitted your work to us between July 31, 2020 and March 30, 2021, it means that it is now under review for our third season (Burnt 3). Please bear with us, we did not forget about your work, our jury is looking through the applications now. Please allow us time to go through the many wonderful submissions we have received. We are planning a number of screenings for our 3rd edition. More specific information along with the final selection of the films, will be announced by June 30th. _____ Based in Montreal, Canada, Burnt Experimental Video Art and Film Festival is back with its third international edition! We will continue promoting experimental video artworks and experimental films by artists from around the world. We are looking to show radical experimental video art and film, whether abstract, absurd, comedic, critical, queer or uncanny. Deadline for submissions is February 15, 2021. Burnt Fest is a process driven initiative, themes emerge as the selection process happens. Priority will be given to experimental works that explore urgent personal, social, economic, political, philosophical issues, either specific to the country of the artist, or worldwide, using the experimental approach to storytelling, and imagemaking. Traditional fiction, documentary, action, thriller or other conventional genres are not supported by our fest. The screenings will be held in Montreal, Quebec starting July 2021 (venue and date TBA). The fest is 100% independently organized and made possible thanks to the efforts of the organizers, the jury, the audience, and last but most important: the ARTISTS who send in their applications. Our jury is comprised of experimental video artists, experimental filmmakers, and art critics from various national backgrounds, currently living in Montreal, Canada. To organize our third edition, we determined a $5 fee for each application. The funds accumulated through the application fees will form Audience and Jury awards cash prizes as well as cover expenses related to the screenings, and organization of the festival. During the past two editions we were able to have only one screening, which made us let go of many great works due to restrictions of time and space. This year our aim is to have multiple screening programs, that being said, it also depends on the volume of applications we receive.
