Drive-In Open Screen

Thank you for your interest in TCA Drive-in Open Screen! 

Let’s share digital art projects on the back wall of TCA! After a long time working independently, this is a chance for artists to share work.

Guidelines / Downloadable PDF of Guidelines

All forms of digital media projects in all genres are welcome; short films, projection art, animation projects, music videos. Works in progress are also welcome. We welcome creative work from organizations; promotional material will not be accepted.

Length of work: We invite short projects, 1 min – 15 mins in length so that we are able to showcase many artists. We anticipate a drive-in program no longer than 60 minutes, which will feature the work of multiple artists. Depending on the number of submissions we receive, TCA may host multiple open screen nights.

File specifications and delivery:

  • Format: .mp4, 1920X1080
  • File name: Artist Name_Project Title
  • Submission options: upload to Google submission form, provide link to DropBox or Google Drive, transfer file to using WeTransfer. We will also accept in person delivery of a thumb drive.

 Submission Deadline: March 8, 2021.

When will this happen? As of now, we do not have drive-in screening dates. We are hoping for mid-March!

Visual Arts  

Movement: Ripple, Wave, Vibration

Water, land, sound, light, and ourselves. Movement in the environment, in nature, in daily life. After a time of individuals needing to be still or having to be still, this show seeks to explore movement and elevate visual art made by youth who recognize that movement continues and is continuous in our wide world.
