09.14.23 Qmmunity: Carnival of Queers by James Scott (Austin Chronicle)

Preheat is an annual short experimental film festival based on the idea of what digital movement can be. This festival is presented in partnership with The Museum of Human Achievement’s 2023 Summer Drive In Series and taking place on September 16th.

Preheat explores and bends the idea of dance and how that can translate on to the digital and through video elements. We are driven by the idea of challenging boundaries through what we call "border blending". We seek to challenge preconceptions of what a dance film can be, and ideas on who can perform or create experimental video art. We are prioritizing creatives who are a part of marginalized communities: BIPOC, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, and based in Austin, Texas. This is the 2nd edition of Preheat. Preheat started as a grassroots gathering in a backyard as an alternative form of organizing and sharing art. There is no application fee and every artist that is chosen will receive a small stipend to honor their work done behind the screen thanks to MoHA.
