On Screen/In Person will tour new independent American films and their creators to communities across the mid-Atlantic region beginning in fall 2011, as a program run by the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation. Each year the Foundation will select up to 30 organizations to serve as host sites through an open, competitive application process. Host sites participate in film selection, screen six films annually over two three-month intervals (September-October-November; February-March-April), and in consultation with the visiting filmmakers develop community activities that provide context and greater appreciation for the screened work Films, including animation, documentaries, experimental and narrative work, are submitted by filmmakers for consideration through an annual nationwide open call for entries.
The first application receipt deadline for organizations based in Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, U.S. Virgin Islands, Virginia and West Virginia interested in serving as host sites is Friday, February 25, 2011. Guidelines and application forms are available here.
Filmmakers interested in being considered for the program should visit Withoutabox. The deadline for film submissions is April 1, 2011.
