Open Call for Student Video Work #9

The Anderson is excited to issue Video Call #9, open to all current VCUarts student artists working with video and time based media, regardless of major! Submissions of student video work will be reviewed by The Anderson’s curatorial team and projects will be selected based on strength of content. Selected projects will be projected on a wall outside The Anderson. Please see the link below for the submission form. We are eager to receive your work and share it via this public exhibition!


2/13 – Call opens

2/23 – Call closes

3/03 – Selected artists notified

3/31 – Night of screening + artist talk outside The Anderson, 7:30-9pm

How To Submit:

See the link to the Google form at the end of this page! Videos must be submitted in the form of a Vimeo link. To upload video files into Vimeo you must first create an account. Creating an account and uploading content are both free services. Please see the submission form for more details.


Preference will be given to shorter work so that we can accommodate more work into the reel, so please submit work that is around 5 minutes long or less. When in doubt, submit anyway! Decisions will be made on a case by case basis.

Technical Considerations:

We request that the resolution of the videos be 3840 x 2160 size. Videos should be formatted as .mov or .mp4 files – we can’t promise that we’ll be able to support other file types. If you have any additional technical questions, feel free to reach out! And we’ll answer them as best we can. You can reach us at (Andy Mazzella) and (Monica Kinsey).

Content Restrictions:

As with duration, there are no fixed or explicit guidelines for content. If it complies with Vimeo’s content guidelines then, in a broad sense, it likely complies with ours. With that said, the Anderson is a public and inclusive space and, where possible, we appreciate your efforts to keep it PG-13.
