Artists from around the world are invited to submit work for BLACK BOX 2.0.
BLACK BOX is the first international art, film and technology festival in Seattle. A multi-platform program of significant scope, BLACK BOX presents emerging and established contemporary artists who expand the language of cinema. Core programming is nomadic and antidisciplinary, focusing on experimental film, video, new media art and moving-image-based work. BLACK BOX 2.0 will take place from May 6 – June 7, 2015, during the 41st Seattle International Film Festival. It is organized independently by Aktionsart, a new art and technology nonprofit based in the Pacific Northwest.
A comprehensive festival program with screenings, exhibitions, artist talks, discussion panels, educational events and special presentations occurs in various locations throughout Seattle. BLACK BOX 2.0 incorporates multiple platforms – movie theaters, living rooms, galleries, museums, public spaces and shipping containers. An online channel premieres and distributes exclusive content to audiences in Seattle and beyond.
