The Columbus Moving Image Art Review 43 

CMIAR 43 Submission Form (online Submission Form)

Columbus Moving Image Art Review is a repeating event that is projected to occur on a quarterly basis.
If you are interested in submitting moving image artwork for the most current screening event please read the following guidelines.

    1. The purpose of the CMIAR is to provide a screening event for Ohio moving image artists. To be accepted for the submission process you must have an Ohio Address. If you have questions about this please feel free to email us.
    2. CMIAR is designed to screen moving image art, film, video, animation, software art, etc. All these categories can be a very loosely applied especially in the case of moving image work. For this reason we suggest that if you are making any kind of work that uses film or video in way shape or form, you should submit. If your work contains images or colors and they move then most likely it is Moving Image Art and you should submit. If you have questions about this again please email.
    3. Selected entries will be chosen based on appropriateness for the current screening. CMIAR screenings are projected to run for 120 minutes. A large portion of the selection process will be fitting the most amount of work from the most artists in to that amount of time. If a work is not selected for the current screening that does not mean that it will not be selected for future screenings.
    4. Artist should not submit more than 3 moving image works per submission period.
    5. There are no formal time constraints on the running time of submitted works. This being said, please re-read number 3. The longer running time a work has the harder it will be to program into a screening. We understand that not all moving image art is under 20 minutes in length and ask artists who submit working that is longer than 20 minutes to be understanding of this difficulty. If you submit a longer work and are not selected for the current screening that does not mean that your work will not be selected in the future.
    6.  All submissions must be physically received by email or by mail weeks prior to the following date:
      Current submissions are due Sunday, July 10th 2020.
    7.  We will notify selected participants no later than a week before the current screening. CMIAR 43 will be an online facebook and youtube live broadcast due to COVID-19.
      Current Screening is Friday, July 24th 2020.
    8.  Work that is submitted in a format other than DVD should send an email to address below to inquire about our ability to accommodate presentation of your work.
    9. By submitting your work to CMIAR you are giving CMIAR expressed permission to use your name and/or work to help in the promotion of CMIAR events. CMIAR 43 will be an online facebook and youtube live broadcast due to COVID-19. By submitting to CMIAR 43 is providing expressed permission to broadcast your film on facebook and youtube for this live screening event. If you have questions about this please email us.

  1. Hi,

    Are you interested in submissions from Cleveland? Not sure if that would be considered a
    “surrounding area” as stated above.

    Thanks for your reply.

    1. At this time we are not excepting submissions from other major cities in Ohio such as Cleveland and Cincinnati. We may open this up to all of Ohio eventually but at this time places such as Cleveland have several museums/galleries and events that can help highlight the type of work we are looking to highlight from the Central Ohio/Columbus area. Please be sure to check back frequently because like I said we may eventually open this up to all of Ohio.
      Thanks for the question.

      1. As of 2011 The Columbus Moving Image Art Review has opened up submissions to all of OHIO. So all you in Cleveland and Cincinnati feel free to send in your submissions.
