2015 Short Movie Festival

More artists and educators than ever are using movies, videos, and animations for different purposes ranging from education, industry, and art. To further the Bridges Organization objectives, we continue our efforts to introduce participants to innovative and integrative techniques in the fields of mathematics and art. A relatively new venue in this regard is The Bridges Short Movie Festival.

The 6th Annual Bridges Short Movie Festival will include a variety of juried and curated videos and short films. The program will include movies, videos and animations that have been created for educational, corporate and artistic purposes, and will provide another opportunity for you to experience innovative and integrative techniques in the fields of mathematics and art.

The Bridges Short Movie Festival is coordinated by award-winning artist and author, Robert Bosch, a Professor of Mathematics at Oberlin College, Ohio, USA.

Call for Mathematical Art Short Movies

Artists and filmmakers are invited to participate in this festival by submitting their works to the submission website. The festival’s time period only accommodate a limited number of movies, which may necessitate rejecting some high quality works. Review criteria include:

  • Math content (This is a mathematically sophisticated audience.)
  • Esthetic appeal (This is admittedly highly subjective.)
  • Medium (A variety of media will make for a more dynamic festival.)
  • Craftsmanship (The level of skill and effort that goes into making an effective presentation of the idea.)

The movie, a still image, and accompanying descriptions should be submitted between April 15 and May 15, 2015. Submissions of movies to Bridges 2015 will only be accepted through the submission website.
