Global Nonviolent Film Festival reveals the official poster for its 8th annual edition taking place 19 – 29 September, 2019.

The poster was created by Daria Trifu, the Festival’s director, who also designed and executed the original artwork. “I created this poster as a visual means to show what our Festival stands for: peace and hope over war and violence. The contrast between light and dark was an essential component hence the choice of colour and black & white. The purity of the little girl signifies the hope for a better and brighter future.”

Call for environmental short film submissions

Eligibility:

Artists Without A Cause is looking for short film and video submissions for a film screening in mid-July to bring accessible information and awareness to the issue of climate change.

Climate change is an alarming issue that is shoving negative effects on animals and the environment. As such a multifaceted problem often intertwined with money and political power, it’s hard to see how humans will be able to make the shift towards an eco-friendly lifestyle. But something needs to change. Ecosystems are constantly threatened by human impact. Not only will animals and habitats face the implications of global warming, but humans as well.

This is where you come in! We are looking for short films and video submissions that bring awareness to this crucial topic. We’re interested in short films focusing on environmentalism, climate change, and the effects of humans on the environment.

This event is being curated by me, current AWAC intern Ricky Major, with support of the rest of the team. Being a student involved in environmental studies, I want to use my remaining weeks in Berlin to arrange an event that relates to my studies, interests, and current pressing topics.

Margate Film Festival artist commission

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Margate Film Festival is a project born out of the turbulence of changing cultural landscapes and a love for the chaos of creativity – a journey through the wilderness of the cinema.

The festival connects local communities and artists with national and international initiatives to create a DIY, collaborative film & visual arts celebration. This year it will expand to include artists moving image, audio-visual installations and a programme of talks, overlapping with the Turner Prize.

The 2019 festival explores the theme of ‘Against The Tide’, collating stories of political and personal change; exploring migration, transformation and evolution of landscapes, and that of both individual and communal heritage and identities.

We are looking to commission new and innovative audio-visual works that take film beyond the screen, as well as talks, installations and educational opportunities.

We are offering grants of up to £1,000 or options for ticket splits. We would expect most pitches to be under £500. The call-out is open to all creatives, local and international, of any background, experience level, medium or style.

Deadline:
