Electronic Media and Film (EMF) advances artistic exploration and public engagement in the media arts. EMF is dedicated to experimental and creative expression in all genres of time-based and moving image media, including emergent technology. Support is provided for projects that employ electronic media, film and technology as an art form, including historical and rarely seen works that enable media arts appreciation.
Priority is given to programs that combine strong curatorial vision and innovation.
EMF does not support projects or activities that do not address electronic media, film and/or technology as a professional art form, and/or art work. Projects that employ technology as a communications medium, or as a vehicle for other artistic and cultural genres, such as dance, arts education, theater, music and folk arts, are not eligible. EMF does not support websites, mobile and/or social media solely as a platform for information or oral histories. This includes magazine format reporting, and also where content may be creatively produced but does not necessarily constitute a media art work.
EMF does not accept applications from individual artists. Production funding for independent film and media artists is available through the NYSCA Individual Artists Program.
