Call For Works

Scribe Video Center is currently looking for media submissions that respond to the question: As our communities face the dual pandemics of COVID-19 and anti-Black Racism, what do resilience, resistance, joy, grief, and collective care look like? 

Radical Remedies is a rapid response initiative originally started by Detroit Narrative Agency (DNA) and created to amplify community stories, build collective healing and power, and redistribute resources to storytellers and mediamakers.

More information about the program and how to submit, please visit the application here

Street Movies! is a year-round screening series presented by Philadelphia's Scribe Video Center, a non-profit media arts center. The free series tours regional neighborhoods, parks, lots, playgrounds and community spaces throughout the year & offers a program of independent cinema to the general public with a forum for dialogue. Each screening is hosted by a community organization.

The screenings are accompanied by a moderated discussion with the audience about the films or the topics raised in the films.

One objective is to get independent film shown into neighborhoods where it is not usually accessible. The other objective is to get the audience to think critically and talk about the issues presented in the works — whether they are animations, experimental, documentary or narrative.
