Video Out Distribution
Call for Video Submissions | “Too Soon”
Deadline: April 22 2017

Video Out Distribution is seeking video works that grapple with contemporary experiences of history.

After the upheaval of yesterday, last decade, and so on, seers, schemers and searchers of all stripes speculate about the epochal transformations that might befall these nows we know. Crises compel historical thinking: theories of how time passes as well as a plodding accumulation of reckonings with the yester-times that flash now before us with renewed significance. We are interested both in works that treat very specific histories and those that deal with historical matter in a more broad orbit; however it is that now and then are meeting here.

To submit please send a weblink of the work (WeTransfers will not be accepted), a short synopsis, and an artist biography to Digital submissions only, please. Digitized film submissions accepted. No more than 3 submissions per artist. Please send email submissions with the subject LastName_VideoOut by Saturday, April 22nd 2017.

Video Out Distribution is an international, non-exclusive distributor and is a part of VIVO Media Arts Centre located in Vancouver, British Columbia. Works selected from this call for submissions will be screened at VIVO’s monthly series New Additions. The date for this screening has not yet been confirmed.

Venue Accessibility

VIVO is located in the homelands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples in a warehouse space at 2625 Kaslo Street south of East Broadway at the end of E 10th. Transit line 9 stops at Kaslo Street on Broadway. From the bus stop, the path is paved, curbless, and on a slight decline. The closest skytrain station is Renfrew Station, which is three blocks south-east of VIVO and has an elevator. From there, the path is paved, curbless, and on a slight incline. There is parking available at VIVO, including wheelchair access parking. There is a bike rack at the entrance. The front entrance leads indoors to a set of 7 stairs to the lobby.

Wheelchair/Walker Access

A wheelchair ramp is located at the west side of the main entrance. The ramp has two runs: the first run is 20 feet long, and the second run is 26 feet. The ramp is 60 inches wide. The slope is 1:12. The ramp itself is concrete and has handrails on both sides. There is an outward swinging door (34 inch width) at the top of the ramp leading to a vestibule. A second outward swinging door (33 inch width) opens into the exhibition space. Buzzers and intercoms are located at both doors to notify staff during regular office hours or events to unlock the doors. Once unlocked, visitors can use automatic operators to open the doors.


There are two all-gender washrooms. One has a stall and is not wheelchair accessible. The other is a single room with a urinal and is wheelchair accessible: the door is 33 inches wide and inward swinging, without automation. The toilet has 11 inch clearance on the left side and a handrail.

To reach the bathrooms from the studio, exit through the double doors and proceed straight through the lobby and down the hall . Turn left, and the two bathrooms will be on your right side. The closest one has a stall and is not wheelchair accessible. The far bathroom is accessible.
