Call for entries: Kodama Photo Contest

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The mythical Kodama were believed to reside beneath the shifting emerald tides of an endless sea of trees in the ancient folklore of Japan, forest deities whose forms were often indistinguishable from the woods in which they made their homes. Yet Kodama also referred to the mournful cry of these spirits which resounded through the trees, an echo that carried nature’s tidings across the breadth of space and time.

The Kodama Film Festival was conceived as a means of emulating that same sense of earthly reverberation, by finding creative voices that would meaningfully reflect the wonder of the natural world onto contemporary society.

The brief for submissions is as broad as nature is vast; to present photos that explore the physical and spiritual landscapes of the planet; to connect the rhymes and rhythms of the people with the land; and to generate a sense of communal reflection upon humanity’s often tumultuous relationship with its various habitats.

Any variation or experimentation on theme and genre is very much encouraged. You should feel free to work without constraints, approaching the given subject matter from whichever way you choose.

General topics that may be touched upon include: the relationship between architectural and natural space, portraits of rural life, tension between local and global communities, attitudes towards migration and diversity, the ecological transformation of the planet due to climate change, and the possibilities for sustainable development.

With the founding of Kodama, we aim to bring together a diverse community of both emerging and existing filmmakers who through a variety of styles and sensibilities will form a living artistic record of the natural world. We would very much like to use this opportunity to extend an invitation to visual artists and directors everywhere to take part in this ongoing experiment, which will offer a unique chance to showcase your distinctive vision of the world....

Prizes Details: 

The selected photographs will be part of a fanzine published by La Casa del Árbol bookstore in Buenos Aires and an exhibition in cultural spaces. There will also be a monetary prize. 

Deadline:

Open Call for Films and Music videos: Vinilonga Short Film Festival

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Vinilonga is a film festival run by filmmakers for filmmakers! A new cinematic endeavour based out of Buenos Aires, Argentina, The Vinilonga Film Festival offers emerging and established talent alike a dynamic space in which to showcase their own unique projects. With events taking place both online and in cultural hotspots across South America, the festival also affords audiences the opportunity to experience a wealth and diversity on storytelling beyond the remits of mainstream cinema.

We like to imagine ourselves as a conceptual costume party, in which a different theme or topic serves as a sort-of cinematic dress-code for each of our editions. With a new instalment of the festival held every three months, each programme contains fifteen short films carefully selected from a rolling pool of submissions in order to fit the brief for that particular season.

So whether your interests lie in fiction, documentary, video-dance, video-poetry, experimental film, animation, or a combination of these elements, we encourage both domestic and international participants to utilise whatever means or methods they see fit when submitting their short film or video-clip for our consideration.

With our curatorial criteria based around finding unique perspectives on contemporary issues, including stories and styles and values we don’t typically observe in the mass-media, our aim at Vinilonga is to integrate a plethora of creative voices from across space and culture into a unique cinematic ensemble. In presenting the best-possible stories told over a mere matter of minutes, we hope not only to illuminate what separates us as artists but what unites us as human-beings

REMOTE INSTRUCTIONAL RESIDENCY

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

REMOTE INSTRUCTIONAL RESIDENCY

Crossed by the current context, we think in the necessity of researching the possibilities of the artistic work, bounded by the social distancing provisions we look for alternatives of coexistence through the artistic activation of our Shop- Window. Different voices have drawn our attention to the increasing vigilance and control by the state and society in general.

Instructional Residency is proposed as an artistic device of visibility and reflection on the current context and its consequences, based on the appearance in the public space in a situation of isolation / social distancing due to the pandemic. Using the space of a commercial showcase beside the street, Belgrado’s Shop-Window becomes a device of aseptic exhibition, isolated from the viewers, the passers by that walk the Belgrano Avenue in the City of Buenos Aires.

We invite artists to send their proposals to carry out their work remotely in the Belgrado’s Shop-Window. The proposals will be sent as instructions, and Casa Belgrado team will carry out the works based on the artistic instructions of the selected proposals, (subject to) the human and technical resources of the space.

FIELDS OF CREATION

Site Specific, transdisciplinary transit between contemporary performing practices, performance, movement, theater and its possible expansions, to sound, multimedia and audiovisual art. We embrace intersections and experiences in hybrid formats of composition and presentation close to the idea of post-discipline.

Social isolation – body – home – virus and pandemic – control and surveillance devices – posthumanism – interior- exterior – dystopian futures.

The selected projects will have three encounters via zoom before the realization of the piece-instructive:

  1. -General presentation
  2. -Technical and artistic direction meeting
  3. -Technical and artistic tunning

Important considerations:

The residency has no cost for the artist

The pieces will take place totally inside the Belgrado’s Shop-Window

The exhibition of the pieces can last between 3 hours and 4 days

The access of the public to the Shop-Window will not be allowed

The costs of necessary materials and additional resources are the responsibility of the artist.

The realization of the pieces includes the audiovisual recording of them and their divulgation on social media

All details and incidentals not mentioned in this convocatory will be resolved in dialogue with Casa Belgrado’s team.

The human and material resources will be available for the proposals

The proposals will be received until july 31

The selected projects will be announced the first week of August.

The selected projects will be exhibited during 2020. Doubts and queries to espaciobelgrado@gmail.com

Shop-Window Residency

Eligibility:

Open Call - The Belgrado Shop Window Residency 2020 - 2021

Crossed by the current context, we think about the need to investigate the possibilities of artistic endeavors, limited by the provisions of social distancing, we look for alternatives of coexistence through the artistic activation of our Shopwindow.

Located on Belgrano Ave. in the center of Buenos Aires, in an area with high vehicular and pedestrian traffic, close to squares, supermarkets, hospitals, subway stations and trains, The Belgrado Shop Window has a high flow of people that pass in front of it daily, even in this context.

The glass window of a former furniture store today serves as an exhibition space and contemporary art studio. The Shop Window is thought of as a device for experimentation, intervention and dialogue with the territory, a window into the public space, which, enhanced by this particular context, results in a device capable of generating micro-encounters with the passers-by.

In response to the communication that the Argentine government has had projecting the resumption of international flights for September 1, 2020, we call on artists of all nationalities to participate in the residences that our space offers from that date.
