At the heart of filmmaking is storytelling, and avant-garde cinema, through experimentation, uncovers new devices and formulae to tell stories. It enriches the filmmaker’s palette of tools to convey ideas and emotions that can only be conveyed by film.
Devoid of the traditional storytelling, but aspires to the pure non-representational form of filmmaking.
Any documentary short that can be deemed expressive and experimental. Creative documentaries are most welcome.
At least 70 percent of the film should be animated whether it's narrative or non-narrative.
