For a third consecutive year, OBORO and Sherif Laoun of Georges Laoun Opticien partner to bring new media art into the community of the Plateau Mont-Royal. The GEORGES-LAOUN-OPTICIEN-OBORO Super Short Film Prize rewards six artists for a short film of less than three minutes.
Making good use of their shared neighbourhood and common patronage of the arts, Georges Laoun Opticien and OBORO have come together to create this prize. Every finalist will receive $100 in cash, and the winner will be offered a prize of $500 in cash and $1500 of access to OBORO's New Media Lab equipment and studios.
The six finalists’ videos will be screened in the storefront of Georges Laoun Opticien located at 4012 Saint-Denis Street in Montreal through November 11. The winner will be announced at the launch cocktail on October 28 at 5:30 pm.
