Call for Entries:
DEADLINE: Dec. 20, 2017

Experimental Response Cinema seeks experimental film and video works for a program entitled TR*MP TH*S!, in commemoration of the one year anniversary of the presidency of Donald J. Trump. We are looking for works that respond to the first year of Trump presidency, or that touch on issues of racism, sexism, homophobia, religious intolerance, environmental degradation, corporate greed, Wall Street malfeasance, gun violence, corruption, voter suppression, foreign intervention in elections, defunding health care, human rights, income inequality, BLM…  well it’s an endless list, not to mention buffoonery, narcissism, pathology, lies, obsessive twittery…

Works need not be new.

TR*MP TH*S, a follow up to our successful F*CK TR*MP program the night before the 2017 inauguration, will be screened in Austin, Texas on the administration’s one-year anniversary.

Cathartic as well as a call to action, this screening of short films will address the current political landscape in ways both playful and incisive, affirming creativity as a vital and necessary response in the face of lies, corporate greed, bigotry and willful ignorance.

To submit, send an email to with a link to a preview of your work, with a password if necessary. There is no submission fee.

The screening will be admission by donation, and a small honorarium will be paid for all included entries.
