Alternative Night of Experimental Film

Eligibility:

An Alternative Night of Experimental Film is inviting submissions of short experimental films and moving image works that will compose the programme of 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.

The theme is generally open but we are strongly interested in works that explore various aspects of human experience, including identity, culture, and perception, looking to present a programme comprising of diverse voices and original visions.

Additionally we encourage submissions of works that use music, sound design, or dance as a significant element. As the films will be presented in a small music venue we are hoping to create a space for networking between individuals working with film, sound, and music, and to encourage future collaborations.

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.

If you’ve ever had to explain what you do to someone only familiar with narrative and mainstream filmmaking, and found yourself saying: “I make weird and meaningful short films” you should submit to our showcase.

Awards & Prizes

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

Rules & Terms

Films should be no longer than 15 minutes.

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