Submit Art for an Upcoming Exhibition







4th Ae Film Festival - July 2017


Over the past ten years, Altered Esthetics has hosted over 100 group exhibitions, launched a solo exhibitions program for emerging artists, and have brought the work of more than 500 artists to public view - many of whom were sharing their artwork with the public for the very first time. Altered Esthetics largest program is the  Ae Film Festival (formerly the Ae Art House Film Festival), an annual ARTshare event dedicated to the organization’s mission to foster an inclusive and sustainable arts community through exhibitions, education, and outreach. By drawing on a broad range of innovative modes and techniques, the festival exhibits artists who explore the art of the moving image, including artworks that represent experimental narratives, avant-garde poetics, genre-expanding documentary, and contemporary art practices. The selections of short film and video work and accompanying panel discussions stretches the notion of what the moving image is and can be. 

Ae Film Festival proudly and excluisvely accepts entries via, the world's best online submission platform. FilmFreeway offers free HD online screeners, unlimited video storage, digital press kits, and more. Click to submit with FilmFreeway.

Earth Works - June 2017


Altered Esthetics seeks submissions of all mediums for Earth Works, a group exhibition at Ae’s gallery at the Southern Theater in June 2017.

Whether we recognize it or not, nature is a constant force in our lives that physically and emotionally shapes our presence in the world. Our humanity is informed by the land that we inhabit and the inherent tie we maintain with the earth.

We are seeking work that reflects on our connection with the natural world, whether that relationship be deferential, scientific, or abusive.
