New Media

Welcome! You are about to submit a proposal for a New Media Project at the 76th Annual University Film and Video Association Conference, which will be held at SUNY Fredonia from July 26-29, 2022.

 New media projects vary widely and may be interactive physical installations or presentations involving more traditional audiovisual means, but all employ imaginative methods to push the boundaries of what is possible in the media arts. New media submissions of VR/AR/Interactive/ Generative technology and all categories, styles, and subjects are welcome.

Please note that the exhibition space at SUNY Fredonia can accommodate installations of 7 feet or less in height. The artist must be on site to install and supervise their work; a gallery attendant is not guaranteed. The work must remain in the gallery for the duration of the conference (setup complete the evening before the conference opens and through the last morning of the conference).

You must be a current UFVA member to submit work and present it at the conference.

All members may submit a total of two items, which must be in different content areas. The six content areas for UFVA 2022 are listed below. (Serving as a respondent does not count as a submission.)

  1. Papers & Panels (includes individual papers and pre-constituted panels)
  2. Screenings
  3. Scripts
  4. New Media
  5. Workshops
  6. Multicam/Live

Please note that the conference is July 26-29, 2022 at SUNY Fredonia in; your submission(s) may be programmed at any time during that period. We cannot accommodate requests for scheduling on specific date(s). Once the schedule is released, we won’t be able to make changes, so please be prepared to present your work on any of the four full days of the conference.

You will be notified of your project’s status by the end of May.

UFVA embraces diversity of backgrounds, identities, and experiences as foundational to the future of our discipline, and encourages submission of a wide range of work that interrogates and celebrates the creative and interdisciplinary potential of film, video, and media arts. Additional information can be found in the UFVA Statement of Inclusivity.


Submission Deadline: March 15, 2022
