TAG 2010: Call for Movies

The Centre for Audio-Visual Study and Practice of Archaeology (CASPAR)
in conjunction with the University of California at Berkeley invite
short, 3-minute long movies that push the boundaries of archaeological
filmmaking.  In the spirit of the Theoretical Archaeological Group
meetings, innovative submissions that utilize the strengths of digital
filmmaking will be given the highest consideration for the screen
festival. Some genres under consideration are machinima, animation,
experimental, parody, “fake” films, and other unexpected or unexplored
formats.  These movies will be screened live at TAG 2010 (December 14-17)  in Bristol, UK and simulcast on OKAPI island in Second Life and will be entered for a juried prize.  The deadline for submissions is December 1.

If you have any questions, please contact tringham@berkeley.edu or clmorgan@berkeley.edu.
