Video takeaway

Video Takeaway is a series of curated programmes of video works presented on existing TV monitors in takeaways across the city of Plymouth, during Plymouth Fringe which runs alongside British Art Show 7. Video Takeaway is curated and organised by Come to Ours.

Video Takeaway aims to show exciting short film and video works to a captive audience while they use our carefully selected takeaways.

Film or video submissions should be:
- silent
- 4:3 format
- made for the specific context of a TV monitor in a takeaway (or existing works that would be interesting to be seen in this context)
- between 30 seconds and 5 min (although we will consider longer works on a case-by-case basis)
- suitable for a viewing in a public space, for a mixed audience (no explicit content,)

When you are considering your submission think about things that are visually stimulating, that might play in the background of a drunken conversation, that play with the idea of being seen in a takeaway, that play with being silent. Be aware that long narrative works might not function well in this situation.

Upload your video online (eg using Vimeo or other video sharing site) and send us a link via email to cometooursplymouth[at]
We CANNOT accept work on DVD, tape or other offline formats at this point.

DEADLINE: Fri 24 Jun 2011 at 5:00pm

VIDEO TAKEAWAY is part of an artist-led, low-budget project so unfortunately we are not able to offer a fee for any of the works shown. Your video will be documented online as part of the archive of the Come to Ours project.
