May 31, 2017 at The New Parkway in Oakland.
The OutOfFocus Music Video Festival showcases and celebrates music videos, animations, and shorts produced by local video artists while creating a community that connects musicians, filmmakers, visual artists and storytellers.
The focus of the fest is on MUSIC + VIDEO, which for us includes music videos and animated shorts (preferably 1-7 minutes long).
Just make sure it’s good enough to be played LOUD and LARGE.
We will review every single entry, so you can be assured that your video is fully considered. (Please be patient however as we may not get back to you right away.) SUBMISSIONS ARE FREE so send us your links!
GENERAL RULES For Video Submissions: Preview submissions may be a link or download to your video. Please ensure that your video plays fully. All submission media should be clearly marked with title, total running time, date created, and email address. Please ensure if you are submitting a film that contains copyrighted material by anyone other than yourself, that you have obtained festival clearance for that material used.
