Welcome to the Daliwood Film Competition, Reception & Exhibition page. Here you will find links to past years' student films as well as details for the upcoming year's exhibition. Daliwood is an annual juried film competition and exhibition of Pinellas and Hillsborough County middle and high school students. This exhibit provides an opportunity to see how, eight decades later, the ideas of Surrealist filmmakers still influence new generations of artists.
About Daliwood, 2014
Theme: Change is Strange
"I see the human form in trees, animals: the animal and vegetable in the human. My art shows the metamorphosis that takes place."- Salvador Dalí
1. Familiar images are changed in form, appearance, nature, condition, character or function to become unusual or strange.
2. A change of the form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one, by natural or supernatural means.
transformation - transfiguration - shape-shifting- illusion
Surrealism invites us into a world where even the most seemingly insignificant occurrences of everyday life can be transformed in order to surprise, to be made strange, shocking or even disturbing. With this year's exhibit, we invite the students to explore metamorphosis through short film.
