Call for Entries
Matches & Mayhem Anarchist Film Festival
May 5-7, 2000.  Chicago, IL.

As part of a celebration of May Day, in the city where it became an
International Worker's Day, the Autonomous Zone will present a sample of films
by, for, and about anarchists.  The histories of anarchists and cinema have
intertwined for the entire twentieth century.  Mainstream films have
discredited, discounted, or simply ignored anarchists.  Fortunately, actual
anarchists and their allies have responded with counter-images of anarchist
struggles for change.  A look at the anarchist presence in the movies gives a
rich sense of the anarchist presence in society.  In pursuit of this, we seek
undistributed and under-distributed films and video to include in this

April 1, 2000 (extended to 4/7).

All entries must be submitted with a complete entry form.  Submissions for
selection must be on VHS video tape.  Acceptable formats for exhibition will
be 16mm or video.  Selections will be based primarily on the time allowances
of our exhibition schedule.  Selections will also be determined by the entry's
relevance to the festival's theme.  There are no awards or prizes offered,
but, due to the nature of the event and its audience, this may unexpectedly
change.  All entrants will be updated on the status of their submissions.  We
ask that submissions be made with a commitment to the spirit of anarchist
community and celebration.

Shipping & Returns:
The cost of shipping submissions are the responsibility of entrants.  Tapes
will be returned only upon request.  To insure an immediate return, please
enclose $3 per tape with your submission.  Otherwise, requested returns will
be made according to the availability of funds.

Address for submissions:
Autonomous Zone, Matches & Mayhem, attn: Carlos, 1573 N. Milwuakee Ave. PMB
420, Chicago, IL 60622.
