Real 2 Reel
4th Documentary Film & Video Festival
http://www.neteze.com/media/

The Root-Media Film Festival invites you to submit your video and/or film 
projects for the 4th Real 2 Reel Documentary Film and Video Festival. This 
year the festival will be held in Riverside, CA. March 8, 9, and 10, 2002. 
Real 2 Reel is a great place to present your work to the general public.

PURPOSE
The purpose of Real 2 Reel is to showcase progressive film and video works 
that focus on issues that are not recognized by mainstream media or that 
tackle issues in ways not done in mainstream media. The main focus is on 
people of color, gays, lesbians, transgendered people, women, the 
environment, labor issues, poverty, housing issues and homelessness, health 
issues, civil disobedience, mass movements and other issues that affect our 
communities.
CRITERIA

The work must focus on issues not dealt with by, and relate to communities 
that are ignored by mainstream media. We are looking for works that use 
film & video as tools for communication to inform about a current or 
on-going struggle, to raise questions about what's being done, or to call 
for actions to help a cause. The emphasis is on content.
SUBMISSION

To be considered for the Festival, please send a 1/2" VHS copy of your work 
for review. Submissions must be postmarked by January 18, 2002. In the 
description of your work, include the format in which it was shot (8mm, 
digital, film, etc.), the total running time, and a brief synopsis. Make 
sure your name and contact info appear on all materials. VHS copies cannot 
be returned. There is a $15 registration fee for each submission. All 
proceeds will be used to cover the costs involved with organizing the 
Festival.
