Double Vision: A Dual-Channel Video Festival

Double Vision: A Dual-Channel Video Festival
Wednesday October 28th, 2009

About The Festival:
This festival is to be screened at Herron School of Art and Design in the Basile Auditorium in conjunction with the photography and video exhibition Between History and Memory. Herron is located on the campus of Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). The screening will take place on Wednesday October 28th, 2009.

About The Theme:
Two Channel video work is a style that is often included in exhibition format but rarely seen in a festival type screening; therefore this festival will exclusively feature this format. Works that truly experiment with the format are encouraged, but any two screen video work will be considered.
