EXTENDED!: OPEN CALL FOR ARTWORK: STIFF 2021

Eligibility:

We are inviting visual and new media artists to submit their artwork for the exhibition program of the 8th Student International Film Festival.

For the last seven years, STIFF Festival has produced a rich accompanying program that elaborates and complements the thematic focus of its film program. With the emphasis on contemporary art practices, STIFF’s exhibition program gathers artists from all over the globe, dealing with relevant social, political, as well as intimate aspects of everyday life. 

This year the festival is giving attention to the Body, and the exhibition program aims to explore socially relevant ways of interpreting the body in a contemporary environment saturated with images. 

What is the relationship between a body and the moving image? Are we our bodies or is the body just merchandise we trade on the labor market and offer in intimate relationships? How to position ourselves in a world where objects move more freely than people?

When is our body an instrument of knowledge, interaction, and intimacy with the world, and when is it a space of discomfort and restriction? Do we allow our bodies to be playful?

We encourage a view of the body as productive and creative, the body as a process that changes its meaning and capacities depending on the context in which it resides.

As an accompanying festival program, the multimedia exhibition will aim to create a special sensory experience that will explore and enrich the subject of the body, challenging our ideas of corporeality and questioning the limits and the capacities of bodies through their constant and fluid interactions with the environment. 

We are inviting artists to submit photographs, GIF animations, video art, or any other form of digital artwork (video games, websites, applications, etc.) that deal with the subject of the body in the broadest sense. We welcome various perspectives, from conceptual to intimate approaches. 

The deadline for application is May 30th, 2021.

STIFF – Student International Film Festival is now calling on all student and debutant filmmakers to submit their films for the 8th festival edition which will take place from 4th to 7th of November 2021 in Rijeka, Croatia.

Works entering the competition program must be original, student-created films or debutants films of all genres: fiction, documentary, animation, and experimental films. All the works need to be up to 60 min in length and completed after the 1st of January 2018. The films must be in English or with English subtitles and must be submitted via FilmFreeway platform. The deadline for registration and delivery of materials is May 30th, 2021.

STIFF festival accepts films of all thematic preoccupations, but this year special attention will be given to the BODY. We wish to broaden our understanding of corporeality in relation to the moving image by reflecting on the body of the author, the body of the film, the body of the viewer, and the body in the film.

What is the relationship of a body with the moving image? How does culture inscribe meaning into bodies? Does our body connect us to the world or separates us from it? Have we overcome the body taboos? When is our body an instrument of knowledge, interaction, and intimacy with the world, and when is it a space of discomfort and restriction?

STIFF is Croatia’s first International Film Festival dedicated entirely to student films. Established by the SKC Rijeka (Student Cultural Center) and organized in collaboration with Filmaktiv – the purpose of the festival is to strengthen the student film and video industry by allowing an insight into the work of other fellow student filmmakers, encouraging the development of new ideas and establishing international collaborations in the field of media production. During six successful years, the festival screened over 350 most recent student fiction, documentary, animated, and experimental films from all around the world. STIFF’s main goal is to present the best of student film production from all around the world and help them get their audiences. It strives to educate audiences about the quality of work of emerging filmmakers.

STIFF is organized in partnership with Art-kino, and supported by the Croatian Audiovisual Centre, the City of Rijeka, Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, and the University of Rijeka.

Sound Occupations: Open Call for Artworks

Eligibility:

Sound Occupations are part of Student International film festival’s (STIFF) supporting program (26. – 29.11.2020.) developed under the Rijeka Capital of Culture 2020. We invite artists to send us their work that explores, records, changes, interprets, produces or in any other way interacts with the sounds of everyday life; in any preferred artistic medium.

Exhibition Sound Occupations is dedicated to sound as a primary generator of everyday and artistic impulses. 

Sound could be understood as an epistemological formative instrument that enables us to analyse urban and imagined spaces but also as an aesthetic tool to help us build and rebuild these landscapes in practice. 

Soundscape determines life’s rhythm, it influences people’s emotions, their motion and thoughts. It occupies, manipulates, alternates, provokes and defines our realities. Examining the sounds of a city or a certain space and community, we can find out a lot about social, political and economic forces at work in those spaces: who and what produces the sounds? Who controls it? Which sounds are dominant and which ones are missing? In what way does the sound connect or separate individuals, groups and images? What happens when a certain sound disappears?

We are searching for works that will explore, enrich and play with the subject of SOUND. Through innovative audio-visual content, objects, installations, live actions and performances, experimental videos, visual poetry  etc. we invite artists to alter the role of sound and make it dominant in relation to the image. The submitted proposals therefore may refer to different areas of artistic expression with the central focus on examining urban soundscapes, exploring ambient and the changes that happen in the sounds of everyday life. 

The aim of the Sound Occupations exhibition is to depart from a still existing dichotomy that separates art and reality, and to create works that contribute to a broader, fuller understanding of art and today’s society. 

Selected works will be exhibited during the STIFF Film Festival (26. – 29. 11. 2020.) as part of the Sound Occupations exhibition in SKC Gallery in Rijeka.
