MONO NO AWARE is an international film event open to any person or group of persons making work that incorporates Super8mm or 16mm film format as part of that presentation. In previous years 16 film was blended with dance performance, Super8 with live spoken word/audience involvement, & multi-projections with live jazz/musical devices. Dancers, Sculptors, Musicians, Theorists, Scientists, Athletes, Visual artists, everyone, AND Film-makers are encouraged to submit. This is not a film festival for film-makers, so much as it is an film event for everyone. Entries are only be accepted on Super8 or 16mm film. FILM ONLY. No Digital Video. We believe there is magic in seeing a film print projected, a presence a poet has when reading their own work, a feeling that resonates in your chest when seeing music performed live. For these reasons we encourage live film with live additional audio/visual elements.

  • Please read a full description about the event on the page titled INFORMATION. There you can read more about the event & how to go about entering your work. The EVENT HISTORY page contains previous years programs and pictures of the event. Be sure to visit the GALLERY to read about 2009’s selected entries and participants biographies.

    ‘Zine release party and Closing Reception for Darin Klein and Friends Present: Louis M. Schmidt.
    We’ll be releasing Move Along People Nothing to Feel Here #5 by Louis M. Schmidt, and the as-yet-untitled ‘zine that gallery visitors contributed to during ‘Zine Fest 2009, on November 14. This will also be a closing reception for Schmidt’s month-long residency in Amy Adler’s studio, with great music by DJ Trickmilla (aka Patrick Miller), plus lots of beer and snacks and fun!!

    November 29
    Special Sunday viewing hours: 12-6pm. Join us in celebrating work conceived, created and contemplated this month by Louis M. Schmidt.

    About the project:

    Darin Klein & Friends embark on an experiment in transparency that questions and examines accepted modes of presentation and representation. By temporarily re-purposing the studio of an already established artist, an emerging artist is given a platform for the expression of their own ideas. Possibilities for intervention and creative collaboration are expected to be explored within the walls of the studio. For the first in a series of exhibitions and related programming, Darin Klein & Friends will touch down at Amy Adler’s Echo Park studio for the month of November 2009 with work and projects by Louis M. Schmidt.

    During his month-long residency, Louis M. Schmidt will be installing, exhibiting and creating works on paper, producing a brand new issue of his ‘zine Move Along People Nothing to Feel Here, hosting parties and community-driven get-togethers, educating and learning from friends and strangers, and shooting for the stars – all before your very eyes. He will be joined by a selection of artists and peers using vocabularies complimentary to his own. We invite you to drop by and see how it all plays out.
