Icebox Project Space
The 20/92 Video Festival is a rare opportunity to exhibit your work in a gallery environment, at unique scale and format. Located in Philadelphia, PA, The Icebox Project Space is one of the largest exhibition spaces in the city at nearly 5,000 sq.ft., and has a dedicated projection system which allows for a continuous image to be cast upon its eastern wall, at a maximum size of 20’ x 92’ with a resolution of 3646 x 768. Submissions will be juried by Icebox directors Timothy Belknap and Ryan McCartney.
For the 2017 20/92 Video Festival we are accepting video entries with no category restrictions. Please keep in mind:
-Videos should be no more than 15 minutes in length
–Submissions may be of any ratio format, but preference will be given to those that utilize the full 3646 x 768 resolution of the system. Common file formats are supported (mov, mp4, avi, but not flv)
-BE AWARE that acoustics in a space this large are unpredictable, and speech frequently becomes inaudible due to echo. For this reason we do not recommend submissions that are dependent on dialogue.
Works Selected for the 2017 20/92 Video Festival will be screened on the 9th, 10th and 11th of March from 12-6pm, with a reception March 9th from 6-9pm
ALL SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE BY SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 12th. CHOSEN SUBMISSIONS WILL BE NOTIFIED BY MONDAY, FEBRUARY 19th. THERE IS A $15 ENTRY FEE FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS (NON-REFUNDABLE).

The Icebox is pleased to announce Future Perfect, an ongoing project with exhibition, performance and publication on display February 2017.
Beginning in 2015, The Icebox has collected and published a yearly manual of predictions. Each edition was comprised of submissions from our greater community, and as such each individual prediction text is a reflection of where we are, and where we are going.
DEADLINE January 30th
For 2017, we aim to gather predictions from as many participants as possible. We are moving to a more timely and accessible platform, Twitter, and invite anyone to let us know what you see ahead. All predictions submitted in 2017 will be featured on the Icebox’s official Twitter account, @IceboxProjects. Feel free to direct your predictions towards us across all social media platforms by using the hashtags #futureperfect, or email your prediction directly to us at email@example.com. Please keep your entry to a maximum of 420 characters (3 tweets).
In February we will line the Icebox with the text of each prediction, constructing a space from our collective thoughts. At the opening reception, February 9th, a selected group of artists will perform a prediction of their choosing from the walls, however they see fit. All predictions will also be available as a printed book, a guide for 2017. Join us in our collective fortune telling, submit as many predictions as you like, and please share with your friends.
The Icebox Project Space is proud to announce its Sound Residency Series
The Icebox is hosting sound-based artists within the space for periods between a few hours and up to 6 weeks, with a focus on experimentation and exploration of the unique acoustic properties of the Icebox (formerly an enormous walk-in freezer, which accounts for some of its unusual characteristics). At the end of each residency, the Icebox will release a track online and at the end of 2016, we intend to compile the tracks onto an LP, as a sonic document.
