All proposals must be for portrait videos (vertical dimensions - 1080 x 1920) in response to the "STTW 2031" prompt. All videos should be 3 - 5 minutes long. Once selected, you'll be asked to complete your video by May 31st, 2021.
We are STRAIGHT THROUGH THE WALL, a guerrilla Arts collective that projects video art onto walls throughout NYC. We scour the city for blank building facades, willing canvases waiting above busy avenues or hovering over quiet gardens and empty lots. With every screening, we incorporate art into the cityscape, merging it with New York’s varied architecture, bringing it out of the rigid structures of galleries & exhibitions, and delivering it directly to the masses.
Our first three seasons included screenings in the Lower East Side, Williamsburg, Chelsea, Dumbo, Crown Heights, Alphabet City, Two Bridges, Downtown Brooklyn, Brownsville, Bed Stuy & the East Village. Our outdoor screenings consist of roughly 30 minute programs screened on loop and are free to all. Emerging & established artists are invited to submit their video proposals following the guidelines below.
Our 2021 outdoor screenings will likely proceed as planned despite Covid-19. We plan to keep our audience safe by following local mandates, such as social-distancing and requiring masks. We're anticipating starting our 2021 Season in late spring.
