OPEN CALL: Animation Work

Posted on February 3, 2020

NSFW (Animation For Adults) is a short animation screening that considers the various ways that sex and the human form are represented in both historical and contemporary styles of animation. The program, curated by C. Jacqueline Wood, ranges in tone and style, presenting work by iconic artists such as Suzan Pitt, while also highlighting local makers and artists.

FotoFocus is now accepting submissions to be included in the screening, taking place in June at The Lodge in Dayton, KY. All forms of animation—from hand-drawn, to stop-motion and computer are welcome. The work must explore sex and the human body in innovative ways by using the techniques of animation to challenge conventional representations of form.


There is no date restriction on the work (could have been made 20 years ago or yesterday), but the maker must reside within 150 miles of Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. All filmmakers who live outside of this boundary are not eligible. It is FREE to submit work, and there is no limit to the number of submissions per maker. Deadline to apply is February 29, 2020.


NSFW (Animation For Adults) is presented by FotoFocus as part of SECOND SCREENS film series held every second Tuesday of the month in 2020. The NSFW (Animation For Adults) screening will be Tuesday, June 9, 2020 at The Lodge, Dayton, KY.
