Eligibility:

Not Selected At This Time is pleased to announce an open call! Artists are invited to submit their visual work(s) to be featured on their instagram, which has been growing 118% in the last 30 days. 

Not Selected At This Time is a platform exhibiting work by visual artists who are underrepresented in the arts by traditional means. Because we believe class (and therefore white supremacy and patriarchy) should not determine an artist’s ability to exhibit, we vow to subscribe to a donation-based submission model, with no fees required by the artist at any point. We prioritize showcasing work by BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, disabled, sex worker, incarcerated, non binary and women artists. This is a rolling submission. We look forward to seeing your work.

Open Call for Curatorial Projects

Share

Theme:

Eligibility:

Open Call for Curatorial Projects

The BFI’s Film Feels season returns this summer, celebrating films’ unique ability to transport us, to illuminate ideas, and to spark conversations. This time round the overall theme is ‘hopeful’, and we’re looking to support three film events that fit Film Feels’ subthemes (outlined below) as part of our All Summer Long season of events.

Film Feels: Hopeful - subthemes:

Hope

Stories imbued with hope for new beginnings, better tomorrows and the goodness of humanity

Dreams of the Future

From smart cities and clean energy to food equity and social justice - whether fiction or non-fiction, films can help us to reimagine the future.

New Ways

Who gets to make films and who gets to see them? Showcasing short film, accessible formats, artists film and debut features from exciting new talent and exploring new approaches to bringing original and previously unheard voices to our programmes.

Who is this open call for?

This project is open to anyone from a background that is underrepresented in the film and cultural sector (for example you are from a community that experiences racism, you are neurodiverse, you are from the LGBTQIA+ community, you did not go to University, you had free school meals as a child  or you are a disabled person). There is currently a lack of diversity within film exhibition, and we’re committed to change by taking steps towards a more inclusive, interesting, and representative cultural sector. 

All applicants must be based in the UK.

What are we looking for? 

We're looking to fund three projects over the next few months - they could be short film programmes, conversational events, audiovisual interventions, unseen docs, archive finds, online happenings, family screenings - whatever you like, surprise us. We would expect applicants to demonstrate some previous experience and/or knowledge of programming and curating, and all projects must fall into one of the Film Feels’ themes outlined above.  

What money is involved?

Three proposals will be taken forward to be presented later this year, with each project given a budget of £750 to cover curation time and any rights clearances. Technicals, venues, and marketing will be covered separately. 

How are the applications assessed?

The applications will be assessed by a small, diverse panel of industry professionals, and will factor in the ambition, originality, feasibility, relevance, and audience-appeal of the projects. The three that score highest within these categories will be taken forward. 

We will let all applicants know the outcome by Monday 14 June 2021.

Whilst we invite potential applicants to get in touch with us with any questions regarding their project proposal or the application process, we are unfortunately unable to offer feedback to unsuccessful applicants.

Class of 2021

Share

Eligibility:

Video artists: do you want your work shown on the Piccadilly Lights?

As part of Circa and Dazed’s Class of 2021, 30 artists will get free studio access, have their work displayed on the iconic London screen, and one finalist will be selected by a special guest judge to win £30k

As we tiptoe into life post-rona, the creative industries are facing a period of reckoning. Will the arts continue to operate within the musty hierarchies of yesteryear, or will fresh paths be forged, taking heed of all the valuable lessons from the past 12 months?

With this in mind, digital arts platform Circa and Dazed are launching Class of 2021. This brand new initiative invites budding video artists from all over the world to submit a two-and-a-half minute short film in response to the theme ‘Communion’, as set by interdisciplinary artist Angel Rose, and judged by a surprise special guest.

Prize summary: 
Win £30,000
Prizes Details: 

30 emerging artists will be given the opportunity to exhibit their work on some of the world’s most iconic screens. Come September, London’s Piccadilly Circus, K-Pop Square in Seoul, and Shinjuku in Tokyo will be ablaze with the winning cohort’s work, each of whom will take over the screens for the 30 days of the month. Participants will, of course, be further platformed to an audience of millions across Dazed’s social media channels, and will gain access to the Dazed Space, a new multimedia studio complex in London. But that’s not all – one lucky finalist will receive a #CIRCAECONOMY prize of £30,000 to help kick start their career.

International Portrait FIlm Festival Open Call 2021

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

IPFF is on the path towards its second edition in 2021. Once again, we will celebrate short portrait cinema, independent filmmaking and art which explores, educates and transforms.

A portrait is an image heavy with meaning. Multilayered and multifaceted, it has a visual, psychological, material, emotional and spiritual dimension.

Unravelled in art, the painted, the literary, the photographic portrait is often perceived by the human mind as a still frozen in time. But, in fact, it has already undergone a transformation. From its true origin, through the consciousness that revives the brush, the quill and the lens, to the semblance that begins its life on the canvas and on the page. Imitation and repetition, but with endless potential for future metamorphoses.

The film portrait, too, is captured in time. It is not motionless - literally and metaphorically. The cinematographic portrait is a soul in the form of light encountering the canvas of the white screen. The portrait is a trace. And a sign. A secret. A reverie.

FOCUS

The portrait is the focus of the films that will be screened at IPFF. We are looking for portrait films that have already been completed, as well as such that will be created with the concrete idea of 'portrait'. Of a person. A group of people. An object. Something invisible, but substantial. Of the self. Or of something else.

AIM

IPFF aspires to bring together artists and viewers who sincerely long for enrichment with art, intellectual discussion and an experience of cinema through a new prism - that of the portrait film.

CHARACTER

IPFF is a hybrid event and platform. A symbiosis of intriguing live encounters and memorable virtual experiences. The interweaving of portrait cinema from around the world and debates, lectures and masterclasses.

SPIRIT

IPFF is for those profoundly needing art and excitement. And for the ones in search of their catharsis. For the unafraid to stare at the screen even when it is empty. For those hungry for experimental viewpoints. For those forever in love with cinema, caught in its loop.

***

IPFF welcomes a wide spectre of films and filmmakers: students, professionals, from low budget to big-scale productions, alternative and independent films by individuals and by collectives or institutions.

Prizes Details: 

The awarded films in each category are determined by an international jury of professionals with impressive accomplishments in their respected fields: film practitioners, academics, film critics, culturologists, authors, journalists. Presenting their different points of view, they distinguish the best films among the Official Selection of the festival (read more on the IPFF website).

IPFF will award the best portrait creations with:

The grand prize IPFF 2021
- A trip to the IPFF festival days in Sofia in 2021
- specially made copper statuette
- digital laurels ‘Maya Award IPFF 2021’

Award for the most wonderful portrait creation in each category
- specially made copper statuette
- digital laurels ‘International Portrait Film Festival - Most Wonderful Film Award’

Audience Award - a favourite film chosen by the IPFF viewers
- specially made copper statuette
- digital laurels ‘International Portrait Film Festival - Audience Award’

IPFF also presents a special award for a Film Dedication about the contribution of a person or about a cause aiming towards a brighter and better world.
- specially made copper statuette
- digital laurels ‘International Portrait Film Festival - Film Dedication Award’

Digital laurels ‘International Portrait Film Festival - Official Selection’ for all selected films.

IPFF Virtual Library is a project we begin in 2021 - offering the opportunity for visibility of the work of each applying artist. Every author who submits a film and is interested in this offer can showcase their film with a trailer in the virtual library of IPFF, based in YouTube. In this way, the applicant artists will have another visible platform within the Internet space. The virtual library will be free and accessible to representatives of the film industry, film communities, researchers, cultural organizations, viewers.
