Music Video Heads Rejoice: Submissions Open For 2015 LA Music Video Festival

on Wednesday, Jun. 3rd

Okay, okay, we slept on this for a second, but we are honor-bound to remind you that submissions are open for the  2015 LA Music Video Festival through June 30th. The official categories this year are: Narrative, Non-Narrative, Student, Unofficial, and Animated.  Submissions go through Withoutabox, which might be familiar to you on the festival set. The entry fee is $20.

Every year the crop of videos at the festival has gotten better and better. I honestly can’t wait to see what comes in this year. (Disclosure: I’ve been a screener for the festival for the past couple of years. Don’t send *me* videos directly, tho, that will only backfire on you. In fact, pretend I don’t exist.)
