The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) is seeking film and video submissions for the seventh installment of Optic Nerve, the museum's popular film and video showcase featuring the work of emerging South Florida artists and filmmakers.

Rules: Submissions must be on VHS or DVD, run no more than 5 minutes in length, contain original material, and include the artist's resume, contact information, a brief description of the work, and biographical statement. Submissions must also include a $10 entry fee for MOCA members, $15 for non-members, payable in check or money order to Museum of Contemporary Art.

Entries are limited to two submissions per person. A separate entry fee applies to each submission. Films will be selected by a jury of film and art professionals, and will be screened at MOCA during Optic Nerve on Friday, August 5 at 7:00 pm. New this year, one film will be selected for purchase for MOCA's permanent collection.

Deadline: Submissions must be postmarked no later than June 10, 2005. Only those accompanied by a stamped, self-addressed envelope will be returned. Optic Nerve is sponsored by Starbucks Coffee Company.
