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.

Deadline: 
30/April/2022

The Uncanny

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

When the familiar becomes unfamiliar, we call it uncanny. That is to say, when something almost satisfies our brain’s search for human likeness, but falls short by a small margin, we experience a characteristic sense of unease at the sight of it. This is our understanding of what it is about realistic androids and almost-perfect-but-not-quite CGI that makes our skin crawl, and it stems from Freudian theory surrounding the German word “unheimlich.” Freud tells us that the unheimlich, or unhomely, is our experience when confronted with something that is like home to us, but is made wrong somehow. How do you incorporate the unheimlich, or uncanny, into your artwork? Does your work illicit a visceral reaction from the viewer, or traverse the boundary between perfect and imperfect human likeness? We want to see your most uncomfortably human and impalpably imperfect images.

Deadline: 
01/December/2021
