Call for Entries – Aural Fixation at Strange Beauty Film Festival (Durham, NC)
Deadline: Nov 15, 2012

Aural Fixation, an audio-only portion of the Strange Beauty Film Festival, is currently accepting audio work of any shape or form with a running time of 30 minutes or less. Pieces in the 90 second to 5 minute range are encouraged. The only requirement is that the work be strangely beautiful and/or beautifully strange. We are looking for stuff that strikes a chord, has an emotional impact, makes us think. If you feel your piece fits the bill, it probably does. We can't wait to hear it.

Previous broadcast history is of no concern. Audio work/sound art of any type/content is welcome, such as narrated, verite, soundscapes, raw tape, excerpts, scenes, sound or audio "moments," found tape, experimental, audio theater, and creative radio work (to name a few). Music may also be a good fit for Aural Fixation if it relies very heavily on recorded sound over musical instruments.

The deadline is November 15, 2012, entry fee is $5.

The festival will be held January 24-26, 2013 at Manbites Dog Theater in gritty Durham, North Carolina.
