applications for our third edition are now closed

Thank you to everyone who submitted work for our third edition! The selection has been finalized; more info on screenings coming soon!

Based in Montreal, Canada, Burnt Video Art and Experimental Film Festival is back with its third international edition! We continue promoting experimental video artworks and experimental films by artists from around the world. We showcase radical experimental video art and film, whether abstract, absurd, comedic, critical, queer or uncanny.

Burnt Fest is a process-driven initiative, themes emerge as the selection process happens. Priority is given to experimental works that explore urgent personal, social, economic, political, philosophical issues, either specific to the country of the artist, or worldwide, using the experimental approach to storytelling and image-making. Traditional fiction, documentary, action, thriller or other conventional genres are not supported by our fest. 

The submissions we received this time around blew us away as usual, making the selection process an incredible challenge. Thank you to everyone who shared their work with us, your continued interest is the support it takes to make this festival possible. You make up Burnt, we are merely a filter, albeit a methodical and sleep-deprived sieve.

Stay tuned for our newsletter, third edition poster (!!!), and, of course, the announcement of selected works! See you watching soon.
