Museum of Moving Image Launches An Open Invitation Call
Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI) is launching an open call for nominations for the Marvels of Media awards — the first awards ceremony to celebrate neurodiversity.
In March of next year, MoMI will present a free, public film festival featuring selected works of honorees, followed by an awards ceremony. An accompanying media exhibit will share the artistry of these honorees, providing a perspective of media-making through the lens of autism.
Artists, designers and other creators working with film, media, TV, animation, game design and new media may self-nominate by submitting a media work or be nominated by a colleague or organization. The application is free and the deadline for entry is Jan. 31. More information can be found here.
