Alternative Night of Experimental Film

Share

Eligibility:

After three successful screening events attended by wonderful creators, the Alternative Night of Experimental Film is back - once again inviting submissions of short experimental films and moving image works that will compose the programme for an informal screening in an alternative music venue in Kingston upon Thames, London. 

We are particularly interested in works by emerging filmmakers and artists based in London; the aim of the event is to create a platform for conversation and networking for those who are exploring the alternative creative paths through experimental cinema. 

This will be the platform's final screening instalment (for now) and we're so excited to welcome moving image enthusiasts of all kinds to a night of immersive films and engaging conversations. The screening date is scheduled for Friday 3 June 2022.

Theme : EXPERIENCE 

In open and imaginative interpretations we ask for films to be engaged with definitions of the word. Below are some examples:

1. direct observation of or participation in events as a basis of knowledge
2. something personally encountered, undergone, or lived through
3. the conscious events that make up an individual life
4. the events that make up the conscious past of a community or nation or humankind generally
5. the act or process of directly perceiving events or reality

We are looking to present a programme comprising of diverse voices and original visions. 

We are aware of limitations of access and challenges of both the film industry and the art world, and our mission is to support the emerging talent in the field of moving image as a multidisciplinary endeavour, creating a community that provides space for growth and mutual encouragement. 

Our event will include a screening, artists' talks, and a space for informal networking opportunities for filmmakers, moving image and sound artists, musicians. Everyone welcome. 

 

RULES:

Films should be no longer than 15 minutes.

We encourage submissions from students, recent graduates, or those without formal film education.

Films have to be in English language or be subtitled in English. All films with dialogue are asked to provide a subtitle file.

Films should be produced after January 2019.

Currently we will prioritise submissions from filmmakers based in London who will be able to attend the screening event. 

Prizes Details: 

This is a non-competitive showcase of the best recent short experimental films with informal networking opportunities.

We’re not quite out of the woods on the COVID epidemic, but international travel has been reopening all around the world. Back in March ‘20, we went into lockdown with 13 artists and learned a lot in the process. Since then, we’ve hosted another dozen or so artists with extra precautions to keep everyone safe, yet maximize the artist’s experience. We believe that a key part of the AIR experience is the commensality – those wonderful conversations we have while sharing a glass of wine and a good meal, along with the freedom to focus on your work.

  • Residency length: Three Months (March-April-May).
  • Fees: The fee per artist is $775 US per month which includes all meals, private room and bath, and studio space. Artists are responsible for their own materials and transportation to and from ArteSumapaz. We have a special car and driver available for pickups from El Dorado Airport in Bogotá for about $85US.
  • Duration of residency: 1-3 months. We recommend taking a residency longer than 1 month so you can have enough time to get used to the space, connect with other artists, and create. One and two months are also available 
  • Accommodation: Private room with bathroom and desk 
  • Disciplines, work equipment and assistance: 
    • Clay & kiln
    • Charcoal (Rustic but functional for drawing)

Sonic Conversations: Creative Clarity And Alternatives For Music Composition with Matana Roberts

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

This is an online workshop over 5 days.

Workshop dates: 07/02/2022 - 07/02/2022

Matana Roberts has been called "a major talent" (The Wire) and "the spokeswoman for a new, politically conscious and refractory Jazz scene" (Jazzthetik). Their Coin Coin work has been widely and highly praised for its stylistic innovations and narrative power. A self-taught mixed media composer, the Chicago-born composer earned two degrees in performance from a smattering of American institutions but received their primary training from free arts programs in the American Public School System.

Matana is a past member of the Black Rock Coalition (BRC) and The Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM). They have been a Van Lier Fellow, a Brecht Forum Fellow, a Copeland Fellow, a Jerome fellow, an ICASP fellow, an FCA awardee, and an Alpert Award In The Arts winner; they're also a recipient of the Doris Duke Impact Award and the Doris Duke Artist Award.

Matana was resident at the Whitney in 2015, and exhibited in 2018 at the Fridman Gallery (NYC) and Bergen Kunsthall. In 2015 she collaborated with the filmmaker Laura Hanna on a film short entitled CODE: Stop & Frisk - this work developed into a series of events throughout 2016 supporting the families of victims of police brutality. This path developed further into her 2017 mixed media work "breathe", for a 32 piece chorus. 

Matana has played with and alongside Rob Mazurek, David Berhman, Pauline Oliveros, Anthony Braxton, Merce Cunningham, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, TV On The Radio, Savath & Savalas, Thee Silver Mt. Zion, Deerhoof and others.

These sessions will revolve around the tools that composer, sound artist and saxophonist Matana finds useful when exploring and creating alternative types of music composition. Self care, outside-the-box thinking, and community will mark the cornerstones of the week. Through this process, by the end of the 5 sessions we will collectively create an alternative group composition that each participant can then experiment with further in their own sonic community.
