Southern Exposure is pleased to announce our 26th Annual Entry-Fee-Free Juried Presentation of new work. This annual event is the premier showcase of contemporary artwork by promising local talent. This year, artists are invited to submit moving image work for consideration by guest juror Christy LeMaster, founding director of Chicago's microcinema The Nightingale.

In conjunction with the screening, LeMaster will give a brief multi-media talk discussing the history of microcinemas in America, collaborative working structures, and creating modes of distribution outside of traditional market logic.
