The Museum of Contemporary Art will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Optic Nerve, its annual festival of short films and videos by artists from South Florida, with a screening of its 12th rendition on Friday, August 6th at 7:00 and 9:00 p.m. Optic Nerve XII will feature 22 films by 21 artists, all less than five minutes in length, selected from an open call for submissions. The festival is part of MOCA’s ongoing effort to provide new opportunities for South Florida artists. Since the inception of Optic Nerve in 2000, over 150 artists have been featured; many of whom publicly presented their work for the first time in this MOCA program.
