The End Frame Video Art Project II: Daily Disclosures calls for entries to the Philippines ’ video art festival taking place at Shangri-la Plaza on 12 – 16 October 2007 after its first run last year. Presented by Visual Pond, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, Listening in Style, Shangri-la Plaza and Rodriguez de Alba Foundation for Creative Advocacy in partnership with Pablo and The One Minutes, the End Frame Video Art Project aims to call attention to and create discussion on video art done by Filipino artists and experimental filmmakers, both here and abroad.

The theme of this year’s video art festival Daily Disclosures calls attention to art in the everyday, particularly the increasing relevance of video art in the face of the constant bombardment of heightened technology in people’s daily activities. Adding an international dimension to the project is the collaboration with The One Minutes, an organization based in the Netherlands that collects one minute video artworks all over the world. As the Philippine partner, Visual Pond is collecting Philippine one minutes through End Frame to enter in The One Minutes Awards in November 2007. All one minutes entered in End Frame will also be eligible for a screening of Philippine one minutes for the Olympic One Minutes exhibit to take place in Beijing in 2008 right before the Summer Olympics.

Those wishing to enter the festival can enter a video artwork of any theme. An artist may opt to submit a one minute work or a work of any length. Filipino citizens/residents as well as those of other nationalities may submit. The videos will be screened by a selection committee composed of Peque Gallaga, Fatima Lasay, Eileen Legaspi-Ramirez, Jun Sabayton and Kidlat Tahimik.

Submission forms along with more detailed information are available at the End Frame website at http://endframe.visualpond.org. Mail or drop off entries, submission forms and resumes in sealed short envelopes at Listening in Style, 5F, Shangri-la Plaza , EDSA, Ortigas.
