hungry eyes festival - festival at the intersection of film, performance and installation art

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

February 5th – 7th, 2021 // KiZ Gießen

For its fourth edition, hungry eyes festival is once again looking for artistic works that situate themselves at the intersection of film, performance and installation art and question film in an interdisciplinary way. This year hungry eyes festival will take place in the urban exhibition space KiZ (Kultur im Zentrum) and poses the question of how cinematic works can relate to, as well as challenge that space.
A program consisting of short film series, performative and installative works will explore what constitutes the medium film and how cinematographic elements and working methods can be translated into other media. What can cinematic work mean in the context of installation art and performances if it does not only mean the playing of audiovisual clips? To what extent can also a short film address its own form and play with performative elements? By which means does film become a field of experimentation that expands its own concept and practice in an interdisciplinary approach? From a ballet of overhead projectors, an exhibition with flip-books to a silent movie screening with
virtual reality glasses – everything is possible.

hungry eyes festival is looking for your short films, installation art and performative formats!

Apply with your works until 31th of August 2020!

Since we are particularly interested in interdisciplinary works, we also want to encourage artists to apply with projects that do not fit perfectly into one of these categories!

Bucharest International Dance Film Festival - Open Call for Shorts - dance films, musicals

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Bucharest International Dance Film Festival, the only cinema event in Romania dedicated to dance films, launched the open call for short dance films, musicals, and animated movies!

BIDFF is the only dance film festival in our country and it was founded out of love for the dance film genre, with the purpose of promoting artists that work across genres and presenting cinematographic projects in which the language of the body explores strong narratives. Each year, the festival has a different theme that reflects upon the contemporary realities and questions the future of the body.

By a surprising and meaningful coincidence, as we are all confronting the global pandemic, utopia | dystopia is the theme of the BIDFF in 2020. The festival looks towards the future and tries to envision it. This year we use utopian | dystopian impulses as an instrument for reflection and dance films as a medium.

We invite film directors, choreographers, visual artists, animators, and musicians to submit their short films to the sixth edition of the festival, that will take place in Bucharest, between September 3 – 6. We also highly encourage filmmakers and other artists to apply if they have a movement themed animation or a short film revolving around the concept of utopia and dystopia.

BIDFF has a regular international and national competition dedicated to short dance films, while also holding the new competitional category for musicals, introduced last year.

- What do we feel while being physically limited by an invisible enemy?

In the face of COVID 19 we refuse to be stopped… If anything, our creativity should be amplified!

So we challenge ourselves and we challenge you...

Conceptualize, choreograph, direct, art direct, & in all ways engage in the creation of a 1-minute or less site-specific dance film inside the privacy of your home.  Respond directly to the site! 

Explore shooting coverage & employing multiple camera angles…. Experiment!!!

Use quick cuts, speed ramps… circle the dance, invite the camera inside of the dance.

Try to capture the feeling of the dance… 

Avoid using only frontal coverage!

Feel free to express exactly how you feel about what you're going through — what we're all going through…

When is the deadline?  With no end in sight to this lockdown, we are extending this challenge indefinitely.
