OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Produce & submit video, images, animations, multimedia pieces, music, writing and other art for inclusion in Deep Dish TV’s multiplatform (web, tv, DVD) collaborative media project, Uprooted: A Grassroots Examination of the Politics of Migration Uprooted is a media project that challenges the mainstream media’s “immigration debate” by highlighting the social & economic policies that drive migration. It delves into how migrant justice issues intersect with labor issues, xenophobia, the prison industrial complex, neoimperialism and more. Uprooted encourages and enables migrant communities and their allies to document & distribute their narratives.

Submissions will be featured on the Uprooted blog. A 10-part series of one hour video programs will be curated from licensed submissions and commissioned work.
