Attention: Filmmakers, Animators, Video Artists, Game Designers…

Ocular Obstinance – a Tarleton student film & media festival

Tarleton Art/Digital Media Studies, in collaboration with the Tarleton Student Film Club, presents a juried (competitive) student media festival, screening as a special public cinematic event in late August, 2018. 

What qualifies?

Video art, short films, animations, game/digital environment art – anything that moves that can be projected onto a cinema screen. Work does not need to be strictly narrative or linear – experimental videos will also be considered.

Only work submitted by Tarleton Students and alumni will be considered, however, videos do not have to have been created for a specific class or specific year at Tarleton – it can be work that you produce independently, outside of class time, or even after you graduate. Submitted films don’t have to your most recent work, just your best.

All videos should be under 10 minutes.


Best in Show, Director’s Choice Award, Best Film Short, Best Experimental, Best Animation, Audience Choice Award. Award winning work from Ocular Obstinance will be featured in a short opening reel for the headlining film event sponsored by the 2018 Langdon Review of the Arts in Texas.

Submission deadline (online only) : Friday, 5/11
