Don’t Bite the Pavement UK?October 1, 2012
So I was talking about this recently with some of the ‘old timers’ from Don’t Bite the Pavement history, and obviously it is still in the early stages… But we have been thinking about putting together a new instalment of the video and film series over here in the UK. I just sent off a couple proposals, so keep an eye out for a new call for submissions and guidelines in the usual avenues and we’ll keep you posted.
(Update: We had a screening last night in Newcastle, with another one next month in Manchester. More dates coming soon and there are plans to tour it in the US this summer)
From the archives, here’s artist Lauren Steinhardt talking about the series:
“Don’t Bite the Pavement provided a crucial platform for nurturing the talents of emerging film and video artists in the Puget Sound area. Each gathering of Don’t Bite the Pavement was a chance for artists and viewers to gather, interact, and to show and discuss their work both completed and in-progress. In this way, DBTP became an integral and vital part of the arts community.”
