Conceived, compiled, and curated by Jean Marie Casbarian

Produced by Jean Marie Casbarian and Taylore C. Wilson

The (NotSo) Short Fest is a 5-hour collection of video shorts created by Transart Institute’s MFA students, faculty and advisors from around the globe. Conceived, compiled, and curated by Jean Marie Casbarian (faculty + advisor), the festival celebrates the creative minds of these international artists over the span of 16 years since the inception of this unique, international low-residency MFA and PHD program.

Five hours of 77 video shorts by 72 artists make up the series of hourly chapters that will screen cumulatively over 11 weeks.

Panel discussions, artists talks, studio visits, and other events featuring the international artists are in development.
