    IAF INTERFICTIONS ONLINE INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN ends above target goal

    Thanks to 277 generous backers for our Interfictions Indiegogo Campaign, we raised $10,318 by the time our campaign ended at midnight, July 14th, 2014.  When we launched on June 3rd, we were staggered to find donations doubling almost daily, until after about 3 weeks we had reached our original target goal of $8,500, and were able to move on to our Stretch Goal of $10,000.

    Which means we not only get to publish Interfictions Online for another year, but we can pay our contributors at higher rates now, rates more in line with the effort and talent that innovation requires. Thank you, each and every one of the 277 generous donors who stepped forward to say that interstitial art is valued and valuable. The number of people is as important as the number of dollars raised. We are awed by your generosity.

    INTERFICTIONS issue #3 is up online!

    The editors of Interfictions Online are happy to announce the birth of the journal’s latest issue, on May 22, 2014!

    The Spring 2014 issue’s non-fiction offerings include Mark Craddock’s poignant collage in Aerial Acrobatics and Gender Reassignment Surgery – A How-To Guide, while Inda Lauryn’s Parallels and Transitions splices analysis of contemporary female vocalists into a graduate school memoir. Isabel Yap’s Life Is Not a Shoujo Manga speaks for itself. And in an interview with Jeff VanderMeer and Jeremy Zerfoss, the two creators discuss their illustrated guide to writing, Wonderbook.

    The fiction offerings remix tropes from ghosts to automata, with new work by Richard Butner, Su-Yee Lin, Kat Howard, Tade Thompson and S. Craig Renfroe Jr.

    Several of the poems in this issue reimagine older narratives: Sridala Swami’s AI Winter draws on the Mahabharata, Sonya Taaffe’s Double Business on Hamlet, and Mary Alexandra Agner’s Hypothesis Between Your Ribs on the brief life of Charles Darwin’s daughter.

  • Call for Applications: Interactive Screen 1.0 & Quebecor Fellowship
    by Felice | May 14th, 2010 |

    The Banff New Media Institute has announced Interactive Screen 1.0 (for everyone) and a $5,000 fellowship opportunity (Canadians only). Check out how fabulous this sounds!

    Interactive Screen 1.0 Beautiful Lives
    Program dates: August 16, 2010 – August 20, 2010 (Registrations will be accepted until the program is full)
    Now in its 15th instalment at The Banff Centre, Interactive Screen is the Banff New Media Institute’s flagship new media event. Its category-busting gambit is to mix a world’s worth of media makers, thinkers, and movers around an open theme, and see what happens.

    At the end of every summer, in the extraordinary mountain setting of The Banff Centre, Interactive Screen proposes a week-long reflection on the social role of new media in Canada and around the world. Participants, who number around 60 every year, come from myriad horizons. Invited by the BNMI or travelling by their own means, they are artists, designers, technologists, writers, theorists, curators, producers, investors, and policymakers. They come to challenge their disciplinary boundaries and consider their practice within a larger context. Unexpected kinships are the rule. Dialogue is constant. Interaction, inevitable.

    See http://www.banffcentre.ca/programs/program.aspx?id=1028 for details.

    Interactive Screen 1.0 Scholarship Intensive (Application deadline July 13, 2010)

    Do you have a creative project or reflective essay related to this year’s theme? (This year’s theme is “the way new media intersects with our aspirations and ambitions, individual or collective, convergent or contradictory, for the betterment of life.”)

    Apply to the Interactive Screen Scholarship Intensive. Scholarships are available for up to 10 Canadian and international applicants, and include focused mentorship and public presentation opportunities, a travel stipend of up to $550, and full financial support for program tuition, meals, and shared accommodations on The Banff Centre campus.

    Scholarship participants will arrive for the Interactive Screen workshop two days early for an advanced mentorship session. During this time, participants will advance their ideas, and formulate their learning objectives and personal goals for the workshop. The projects will then be introduced to the main Interactive Screen conference, and receive further strategic advice and exchange from the international gathering.

    See http://www.banffcentre.ca/programs/program.aspx?id=1029 for further details.

    Quebecor Production Fellowships
    Application deadline: MONDAY, May 17, 2010 [DEADLINE NOW PASSED]

    Accelerate your new media career with a Quebecor Production Fellowship at The Banff Centre’s Banff New Media Institute. Through the generous support of the Quebecor Fund, this scholarship gives one Ontario-based visible minority and/or Aboriginal new media producer the opportunity to attend a 21-day residency at the BNMI between June and December 2010. The scholarship’s value will be a maximum of $5,000 and will cover your application fees, travel, meals, accommodation, and production-related expenses. This residency will provide you with world class support, professional development, mentoring, and career guidance, gaining invaluable experience and expertise in diverse areas of production and technology.
