Drone Cinema Film Festival, a non-competitive curated film festival, 
seeks entries for our 2015 Festival.

We seek independent, unique and compelling work in film, experimental 
video and animation. All interested filmmakers and sound/media artists 
are encouraged to submit work for consideration.

The drone forms the basis of much world music, from Early Music to Ragas 
to Folk Music to experimental electronic music, Drone Music places the 
viewer in a space that exists outside of time, inducing a transcendental 
state of consciousness and visions of ancient exotic landscapes infused 
with eastern philosophies.

On the surface Drone Cinema might share similar qualities with Slow 
Cinema, Structuralism & Minimalism but Drone Cinema eschews narrative 
altogether and instead focuses on micro-movements within the frame: 
monotonal structures, monochromatic radiations, hypnotic ganzfelds, 
slowly changing blur fields, light beams filled with particles of 
dancing dust -- i.e., tiny visual nuances that often go unnoticed by 
casual observers.

If you are a fan of Sunn0))), La Monte Young, Tony Conrad, Phil Niblock, 
Terry Riley, Glenn Branca, Eliane Radigue, Indian Classical Music, Early 
Music, Stars of the Lid or any of the other Drone Music projects then 
you know what drones sound like -- we want to know what you think drones 
look like.

Looking forward to viewing your work,
Kim Cascone
Director/Curator, Drone Cinema Film Festival
