Alternative Night of Experimental Film

Artistic field:

Eligibility:

Following two years of screening seasons 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 and networking opportunity. This time the event will take place in an independent cinema venue in London (announcements to follow soon).

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.

While our theme is always broad, we are again interested in the cinematic and artistic interpretations of the word:
EXPERIENCE.

In open and imaginative ways we ask for films to be engaged with its meaning, some examples of which are below:

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 the 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 and an informal networking opportunity for filmmakers and artists working with moving image. Everyone is welcome to attend and tickets will be soon advertised.

Awards & Prizes

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

Rules & Terms

We accept films that are no longer than 10 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 2021.

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

We are a tiny organisation and unfortunately we are unable to offer individual feedback on submissions, or to respond to individual questions which are answered on this page and our website. Although please free to reach out if anything is not clear.
