Category Rules

VFF is now only accepting entries digitally. If submission by DVD is desired, please contact the programmer before submitting.

Works submitted to this category should be well outside the range of traditional narrative, documentary or animation forms although they may contain residual elements of them. Additionally, they may be considered if they fall within the scope of classical structural-materialist or visionary schools of experimental art. Works submitted to this category that do not qualify as either will be required to re-submit. If you are at all unsure about your work, please feel free to reach out to us before submitting and we will be happy to provide guidance.

Please ensure that you include an artistic statement with your entry as it will be used in jurying. It can be included in your director's statement.
