21 Grand and Killer Banshee Studios present

the 8th Annual
T-10 Video Festival:

Two nights of short video works each clocking in at 10 minutes or less.

January 12 & 13, 2008.          Doors 8pm. Screening 8.30pm.

Doors will open at 8 pm. Screenings will commence promptly at 8:30, with each night presenting an entirely different program of works. As has become tradition each of these two nights will also feature around a half-hour's worth of work by an accomplished - and most likely underrecognized - local video artist. This year we present works by

Anthony Discenza on Saturday January 12
Bill Basquin on Sunday January 13.

The T-10 Video Festival began in December of 2000 shortly after 21 Grand first opened its doors, intended to fill the role of a popular forum in the East Bay for local artists working in video. Now, keep in mind this was over 4 years before Youtube, and during a dry spell between gluts of video art in the Bay Area. As the cultural landscape has shifted so has T-10, redefining its purpose a little more each year. 

Even, or perhaps especially, against such a hyper-egalitarian conflagration of independent video such as YouTube, a short form showcase like T-10 still holds a pertinent role: serving to accentuate the contemplation, fascination, and deliberation within these works, which are often overshadowed in large-scale forums by titillation and "stupid human tricks".

For the first time 21 Grand has invited an outside party to co-organize T-10, bringing in the technical expertise and organizational know-how of Killer Banshee Studios. KBS is a partnership of Kriss De Jong and Eliot K Daughtry, both accomplished media artists. As such they have toured as a live video act performing & collaborating with members of God is My Co-pilot,  created, produced & performed a live video/audio rendition of New York artist Fly's book PEOPs, provided dynamic backdrops for the annual Peace Out festival, are part of Illuminated Corridor, performing in outdoor live cinema events, as well as being veteran contributors to the T-10 Festival itself. Thanks to their added will power we've received the most submissions ever - from as far away as Shanghai and as close as 45th St.
