>> The Screeners Club Movie Series: Open Call for Submissions of Digital Video Work

The Screeners Club is a new, twice-monthly independent movie series offering digital moviemakers an immediate venue at which to screen their work.
Currently, screenings take place in the casual, lounge environment of Level X on North 6th Street, off of Bedford Avenue in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Participants can feel comfortable showing a wide range of work from documentaries and fictional shorts, to music videos and experimental pieces.
As an added benefit, the twice monthly series will be judged by a diverse panel of representatives from the entertainment industry, culminating each month with an award for "Screeners Club Movie of the Month."
Submissions are open and ongoing and all genres and lengths are considered.
Screenings are through video projection.
Additionally, all moviemakers who screen their work will be included in the Screeners Club online database with the option of having a streaming video clip (web video) and/or CD-Rom version of their work produced.
This is one more way to support the moviemaking community. The database will be used to help promote the work of participants even after their work has screened.
Deadline: On-going
Send VHS submissions to: The Screeners Club, c/o Steve Lee, P.O. Box 1174, Peter Stuyvesant P.O., New York, NY 10009-1174
