Open Call: Six Minutes Past Nine (9’6”) Pilot Digital Residency Program





Call for submissions for a virtual residency opportunity centered around moving-image and third space. 

The moving image mimics and relays the accelerated motion of today’s world. It has the potential to not only mirror the present moment, but to reconstitute experience into the digital and the metamorphic. The moving image can look into the future, imagine and reify the movement of signs and symbols existent in our imaginations of what is to come.


Closing date for applications: 16th May 2022 5pm

Residency period: 30th May 2022 - 22nd July 2022 (With possibility to extend)


Open call:

We’re inviting 1 or more artists or collaborative groups who work with moving image to submit their interest in developing work (new or already created) within an open and experimental digital environment as part of Six Minute Past Nine’s exciting 8-week pilot residency.

The work itself does not need to be digitally or technologically focused but we are looking for submissions with a focus of using the space in interesting and experimental ways.

The selected artist or group will receive a digital residency space within the New Art City platform, in which they are free to experiment and explore the use of the space in presenting moving image practices. 

The artist or group’s work will be promoted on Six Minutes Past Nine channels and will have the opportunity to publish and promote the final virtual residency space. 

As part of the residency program, Six Minutes Past Nine will invite you to a symposium in the UK in 2022, which will include talks, discussions and screenings centered around moving image and third space opportunities.

Please note that the selected artist or group will not be expected to engage with the residency space for a specific number of hours - it is up to you how you use the space. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about their practice and who will be excited by the opportunity to work within an expansive digital platform as well as helping us to develop and understand artist support needs.

The analogue world offers opera and theatre unlimited possibilities. With performing artists, music and design, the most varied realms of experience can be conjured on an empty stage in the here and now. But what new (virtual) spaces can be explored by incorporating the digital dimension? The Komische Oper Berlin (KOB) and the Berliner Ensemble (BE) are interested in developing artistic formats that merge new technologies with the classical elements, capabilities and resources of theatre and opera.

To this end KOB and BE are calling for proposals, of which the winning submission will be realised as part of the Spielr ume project. The proposals submitted should be artistic projects that create new formats of theatrical experience in a sustainable and innovative way using digital technologies.

Specifically the KOB and BE are seeking formats that combine the analogue and digital sphere while producing a staged narrative work with actors, singers and/or musicians that also incorporates the live theatre experience. The focus is on formats that can be considered hybrids, amalgamating the analogue tools of theatre and opera with new digital technologies. The preference is for large-format artistic projects that can be realised in a way that involves the ensembles of the BE and the KOB. The resulting production does not have to be suitable for the repertoire, but can also be a temporary installation or a one-off event (that does not necessarily have to conform to the usual time frame of a theatre performance). The production can be realised on the premises of the Berliner Ensemble, but public or other spaces are also conceivable locations. Ideally, the format should be accessible to as wide an audience as possible (installations for individuals or small audiences should be avoided if possible). There are no specifications regarding subject matter: a narrative exploration of contemporary issues and material is as acceptable as research projects, the interpretation of classic works or a critique of the technologies applied.

This call for proposals is part of the collaborative project Spielr ume, which is funded by the Digital Culture Programme of the Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation) and by the Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien (Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media).

Prize Summary: 
120.00,00€ Production Budget
Prizes Details: 

A production budget of € 120,000 (gross) is available for the winning proposal.
Internal operating costs will be borne by the KOB and the BE as an in-house effort, provided they have been duly prearranged, are the venues themselves (BE indoor, outdoor) including their technical equipment as well as, for example, the involvement of both ensembles (actors, singers, chorus, orchestra), the support of technical personnel, in-house staff and key technology managers, marketing and communications, ticketing.
Any expenditure exceeding this must be listed in the budget.

This open call is for artists who work in digital non-fiction, create immersive experiences or experiment with new technologies. We encourage applications from debut, emerging and established artists and collectives from the UK and internationally.

Who can we support?

  • We welcome applications from artists based in the UK and internationally
  • Applicants must be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to innovation in digital storytelling in the realm of non-fiction
  • Evidence of a strong body of artistic work, including a proven track record of recent work, projects, exhibitions, publishing, and/or commissions is desirable, but not essential as this is completion funding

  • It is the sole responsibility of the applicant to secure clearance from the copyright holders of any copyrighted materials included within the submitted projects.

How can we support you?

The selected proposal will be awarded up to £15,000 to cover artist fees, production costs and expenses. Travel (including international flights) and accommodation for the selected artist(s) to install their work and participate in our Alternate Realities programme at the Festival will come from this fund.

The selected winner cannot use the funding to build a marketing campaign for an existing work. Both Sheffield DocFest and Site Gallery will provide marketing support and expertise to promote the Commissioned work. 

We will support display costs through securing the venue and basic AV equipment (subject to technical requirements) and we will also provide the technical support needed to exhibit the work as part of the festival. Sheffield DocFest will act as Executive Producer and we will offer curatorial and production support in the delivery and marketing of the commission.
