Light Work’s Urban Video Project will host Horizons: New Film Out of Central New York , September 3 – 5, 2020. In partnership with the Innovative Group of CNY, the two-day showcase highlights films by 2020 CNY Film Short Competition winners, including Issack Cintrón, Carlton Daniel, Kathryn Ferentchak, and Charles Stulck. The exhibition will be on view at UVP’s outdoor architectural projection site on the facade of the Everson Museum of Art.
*Exhibition patrons visiting the Plaza must maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet between individuals at all times, except for groups visiting from the same household. We encourage everyone to wear face masks to safeguard the public health and as an extension of our commitment to help flatten the COVID Curve.
“Exhibiting these works is an extension of our commitment to supporting emerging artists,” says Urban Video Project director Anneka Herre. “We are excited to offer this unique public platform to graduates of film programs from area universities, including Syracuse University and SUNY Oswego. We extend our congratulations to this year’s award recipients and wish them success with their future projects and careers.”
The CNY Short Film Competition is a juried program administered by Innovation Group of CNY Arts that supports promising young filmmakers who have recently graduated from an accredited film or media program in the Central New York Region. The Competition seeks to provide aspiring filmmakers with the resources and training necessary to develop and produce a professional short film in Central New York, which they can submit to festivals for critical and commercial consideration.
By drawing upon the unique cultural and geographic characteristics of the Central New York region, winning filmmakers explore a wide variety of storytelling perspectives. The Innovation Group of CNY Arts administers the Competition, now in its second year of operation. A grant from Empire State Development and the CNY Regional Economic Development Council supports the Competition. The CNY Arts in the Windows Program supports the screenings, in turn, funded, in part, by the County of Onondaga and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
