Artists' Television Access

Call for submissions: Big Muddy Film Festival

The Big Muddy Film Festival, based at Southern Illinois University
Carbondale has become one of the best-respected, wholly independent,
community-focused film festivals. In its 35th year, Big Muddy is among
the oldest student-organized film festivals in the United States.

The Festival provides cash awards to the best works in competition in
the categories of experimental, documentary, narrative, and animation.
The program is juried by three artists or critics of national and
international recognition. Past Jurors have included Barbara Hammer,
Naomi Uman, Jim Jarmusch, Kerry Laitala, James Benning, Tomonari
Nishikawa, and Sasha Waters-Freyer.

A panel of local activists awards The John Michaels Memorial Film
Award, which honors films that address themes of peace, justice,
community action, human rights, and environmental conservation.

As always, votes from the audience determine the Audience Choice Award.

Submission deadline: October 15, 2012
