We are writing to invite you to submit your video and/or film projects for
the first annual Grassroots Film and Video Festival, June 19, 20, & 21,
1998, in Austin, Texas.  The GF/VF is part of the Culture Jam associated
with the Grassroots News and Media Conference hosted by the Grassroots News
Network.  The festival is a great place to present your work to worldwide
media groups and individuals from around the world.


The purpose of the Grassroots Film and Video Festival is to showcase
progressive film and video works that focus on issues that are not
recognized by mainstream media or works that tackle issues in ways not done
in mainstream media.  The emphasis is on content, though we will not
exclude a piece of work simply because it has style.


Because of time requirements, we can only take works up to 30 minutes in
lenght.  Of course, we can make one or two exceptions.


Please submit a 1/2" VHS copy of your work.  The film/video work must be
completed and postmarked by Wednesday, June 1st, 1998, to be included in
the festival.  Notices of acceptance will be mailed no later than June15th

All submissions will be reviewed by a panel of 5 people who will be elected
by the Austin branch of the Grassroots News Network.

There will be a $10 registration fee for each submission.  The money will
go to cover expenses.  Whatever money is left after expenses are paid will
be donated to a non-profit women's media organization.

The address to send your work to is:

Thuyet An Truong
