Arizona State University Art Museum is proud to present a number of short films and videos by artists from around the world.
Thank you to all the outstanding artists who entered the 2011 Festival. The jury process included 482 entries from 43 states and 36 nations, with 20 works selected for screening.
Organized and juried for the Arizona State University Art Museum by:
Bob Pece, Southern California Filmmaker
John D. Spiak, Curator, Arizona State University Art Museum
*Juror Choice Awards and **AZ Award noted below. LeBlanc Audience Choice Award will be announced online following the festival.
WORKS SELECTED BY THE JURY FOR THE PROGRAM:
Werewolf Trouble (*Juror Choice Award)
Ryan is a werewolf. Horrified to wake up one morning only partially transformed, he enlists his friends’ aid to restore his full human form in time for an important event.
Transferase portrays a protagonist overwhelmed with anxiety after receiving a disturbing phone call. What proceeds is a sequence of small events that operate as a psychological excavation, unveiling the rapidly changing and unstable characteristics of both the protagonist and the LA landscape.
A mockumentary following the Toothfairy’s transformation as she resorts to inventive but unethical methods of tooth collection in her heinous quest for a better life.
Ex-Sex (*Juror Choice Award)
Los Angeles, California
Two former lovers navigate their fizzled relationship by confusing their emotional needs with their physical desires. Ex-Sex makes it better. Ex-Sex makes it worse.

Some exciting 2010 Sundance Film Festival connections for the Arizona State University Art Museum we knew you would enjoy…
Phoenix based artist/videomaker Matthew Moore’s work is selected as part of the Official 2010 Sundance New Frontiers program to take place during this year’s festival.
You will remember Moore’s farm installation and photo works from the 2006 exhibition New American City: Artists Look Forward. He will be doing a major video art installation at a supermarket in Park City. Here is a link:
Michael Mohan, a filmmaker from our 2008 ASU Art Museum Short Film and Video Festival and whose work The Interrogation appeared in the recent I’m Keeping an Eye on You group video exhibition at the Museum, has his newest film One Too Many Mornings as an Official Selection for the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
Shirin Neshat’s Women Without Men, which won her the Silver Lion for best director at the 66th Venice Film Festival in 2009 and was screened for the very first time publically as an early edit version in November of 2007 when the artist presented a lecture at ASU Art Museum, is an Official Sundance Selection this year. The artist had a major solo exhibition at the ASU Art Museum in 2001:
Pipilotti Rist’s Lobe of Lung (The Saliva Ooze Away to the Underground) will be included in the Sundance New Frontiers program. Her work was presented in a solo exhibition at the ASU Art Museum in 2002:
Congratulations to all of our ASU Art Museum friends!
Who’ll be next? Join us on the plaza for the 14th Annual Short Film & Video Festival on April 17!

Ah, I love the museum in the spring. The students are coming back with new excitement after the holiday break, the weather outside is perfect, the exhibitions at the museum are world-class (as always) and we have great annual events coming up soon!
This season is especially great for us video fans (of which I am one!):
- We have video art as part of the new exhibition Altered States: Paintings by Gordon Cheung, opening Jan. 9. Four of his new pieces, to be exact.
- We’ll be screening Mel Chin’s award-winning video work 9-11/9-11 on Feb. 2 – look for details shortly! (I was watching a bit of this earlier – it’s like an animated graphic novel and very cool.)
- There’s a full-on video exhibition opening Feb. 20 called Forged Power: Ferran Mendoza, Alvaro Sau and William Wylie – this will be open through May 29.
- And wrapping it up (at least for the spring season) on April 17, the 14th Annual Short Film and Video Festival! You don’t want to miss this great evening out on the plaza behind the museum – we screen the selected films out on the back wall of the museum. Bring a chair for a really fun night out under the stars. And IT’S FREE.
Speaking of the Film Festival, this is your reminder that your deadline for submissions is Feb. 5! Check out our web site for details on how and where to send your short film for consideration into our juried festival. There’s no cost to submit your film.
Of course, we have way more going on this season than just video art. First Saturdays for Families is in full swing starting Feb. 6; the Ceramics Research Center’s studio tour weekend is Feb. 27-28 and Ceram-A-Rama is March 4-7; back by popular demand, the 2nd annual Street Party is planned for April 10 (watch this blog for more details to come!) and of course, great exhibitions year-round. (I’m really looking forward to seeing Wanxin Zhang’s Ten Year Survey exhibition).
We have a very busy spring season planned and hope you’ll join us for the fun, and the art!
