Artists from the Berkshires & Beyond: Open Call for Video Art

Berkshire Art Association (BAA), in collaboration with Berkshire Lightscapes, invites artists from the Berkshires & beyond to submit original video works.

The deadline for this open call has passed. Exhibit details are TBA.

BAA is partnering with Berkshire Lightscapes to call for short films and videos. We seek to showcase creative film works during late summer and fall of 2021, with a special opening video viewing party night planned for September 24, 2021. 

A jury of artists will select videos to be projected on the wall of the Colonial Theater along with short videos from the Berkshire Theatre Group and the City of Pittsfield. Works will be selected for extraordinary (family-friendly) subject matter and visual appeal.

Artists who have work accepted will be added to BAA’s Artists Registry.
