CON.TXT 2016 Vid Show Playlist
July 29, 2016
In past years the CON.TXT vid show has been slash-only, but this year we've opened to to all vids. The vid show theme for 2016 is fannish diversity and celebration; these vidders want to sell us on their OTP, make us fall in love with their fandom, show us why their fave is the best, or give us a vid that takes an older beloved fandom and makes us all remember our love for it.
This year we're particularly interested in highlighting the diversity of fandom and of human experience. We've selected vids with racial diversity in the characters they feature, vids from older or under-represented canons or for often-overlooked characters, and vids for non-U.S. or non-Western sources. Our roots as a slash con mean that we're particularly interested in vids showing non-heteronormative relationships (slash, femslash, OT3, poly, etc), but we also welcome vids celebrating individual characters or gen vids that highlight a canon.
We are presenting vids in the following categories: World Premiere (never shown before), New (premiered since CON.TXT 2014), Classic (not shown in any prior CON.TXT vid show), and Retro (a favorite from a previous CON.TXT vid show).
Click through each song to see the lyrics as used in the vid, or browse the entire list of lyrics. You will be able to check out the vid show on a thumb drive from the registration desk if you would like a private or Upsuite viewing after Friday evening.
