MCCLA, 2868 Mission Street, San Francisco CA 94110

ENTRY FORM will be available in JUNE 2nd at

“The map is not the territory,” said the philosopher. However, maps carry the key to understanding unknown places, real and imagined. This year VideoFest invites travellers, explorers, migrants and wayfarers of all stripes to submit short videos that explore the lesser known aspects of the everyday. El Pulgarcito, Atzlan, la tierra de Bolivar, de Morazan, la Mission, el barrio, la pachanga. Whether from your front porch, down the street. From Mission to the Tenderloin. AZ, LA, BA, el DF and everything in between. We’re searching video that helps us discern the ground we walk upon and the spaces—material and spiritual—where life happens.

The MCCLA seeks video shorts 20 minutes and under. Videos should have been finished between June 1, 2008 to present. All genres accepted: short docs, narratives, poetic/experimental, drama, imaginary. Priority will go to videos with themes pertinent to the Latino/Raza community.

Submissions will be divided into two categories: Youth (19-and-under) and Adult (20-and-up).

Selected submissions will be curated into tw o programs that will precede short-feature videos (and director’s talks) on Oct. 15th and 16th, 2010.

Best youth video, $250; Best of VideoFest: $750.
