For this mixed category accepting ANY LENGTH An ART film is typically a serious, independent film aimed at a niche market rather than a mass market audience and presented at specialty theaters. EXPERIMENTAL is a mode of filmmaking that rigorously re-evaluates cinematic conventions and explores non-narrative forms and alternatives to traditional narratives or methods of working. SILENT film uses soundtrack elements different from what is being portrayed on the screen and may express concepts or dialogue using title cards. Less
