NXNE invites musicians, filmmakers, and comics to apply for a chance to be a part of one of the world's premier arts festivals. Submissions will be accepted -- online only -- at www.nxne.com until January 31, 2013. Artists can visit www.nxne.com and follow the links to submit music, films, or comedy video/audio to NXNE. Submissions received by December 31 cost $28 -- after December 31, the fee rises to $38.
NXNE Interactive is also seeking submissions, via the popular NXNEi Panel Programmer. Users can submit their ideas for panel discussions and presentations that will inspire and inform attendees about a range of topics in the digital space. Submissions are being accepted until November 2, 2012 at midnight and can be made online at nxne.com/submissions -- at no cost.
NXNE is proud to include Comedy as an official stream of the 2013 festival in addition to Music, Film and Interactive. Over the past three years, NXNE has presented some of the best comedians in Canada -- including Debra DiGiovanni, Mark DeBonis, Trevor Boris, and Scott Thompson's sketch troupe Mouth Congress. Building on a stellar 2012, in which NXNE's 75 comics drew rave reviews, the festival looks forward to an even stronger comedy lineup for next June.
NXNE 2012 saw phenomenal growth: more artists, more film premieres, more day parties and more fans than ever before. During the 7-day festival, more than 330,000 fans experienced NXNE -- anchored by NXNE Music's combined evening audience of 60,000 at Yonge-Dundas Square on the Saturday for The Flaming Lips and on the Sunday for Raekwon and Ghostface Killah.
NXNE Music programs over 800 artists on 55 stages, including music across a full range of genres: rock, hip-hop, punk, alt-country, DJ, folk, electronica, experimental and more. NXNE Film screens documentaries, shorts, animations, and feature films -- anything in which music is front and centre.
