Dance on Film Festival. Deadline September 28.

Country:

Eligibility:

We seek short dance-films that not only show excellence in this genre, but also have connections to site-specificity, architecture, and/or sculpture as well. For 2022, we are particularly interested in screen-dance exploring environment, climate change (and all that entails), earth, clay, mud, soil, ceramics, fragility, histories, etc. We are interested in how site-specific films can be connected through those themes with two exhibits at Grounds For Sculpture: Fragile: Earth by The Color Network, which frames artists’ reflections on social, environmental, and individual perceptions of fragility through the unique materiality of clay and ceramics and The Village Potter by Roberto Lugo.

The festival is open to filmmakers and choreographers everywhere who identify as women or a marginalized gender. We strongly encourage the BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and Disabled community to apply.

The Outlet Dance Project is an annual festival of artists sharing their vision through site-specific dance and film at Grounds For Sculpture – an internationally renowned contemporary sculpture park. In its 18th year, it is one of the largest, most popular, and well-attended dance festivals in New Jersey. The festival celebrates the intersections of visual and moving arts, exploring relationships between sculpture and dance, between place and movement.

Location: 
Grounds For Sculpture 80 Sculptures Way Hamilton, NJ USA

Altered Images v.III

Artistic field:

City:

Eligibility:

Altered Images is a project for film and music experimentation. We bring together artists from various disciplines to create original and unique pieces that will be shown at different events. We are focused in New Media Arts, Sound, Performance, Inclusivity, Feminism and Queer Activism.

​Our showcase is opened to artists  whose work has an experimental and innovative character. 

​The goal of the showcase is to create events of live music, projections, performances and art installations where people can enjoy the show in a relaxed, inclusive and friendly environment.

We are looking for brave and risky filmmakers, who like to explore with the sound and the different hints another artist can give to their images.

​One of our priorities is to look after the selected videos and performances  we are showcasing and the artists behind them (social media and trough different plattforms), inviting them to attend to the event, when possible, and providing feedback to all of them.

Ageing from Existence

City:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

projektado collective is opening for video contributions to its latest project ‘Ageing from existence’. Open to everyone, professional or amateur, and driven by an experimental and collaborative approach to audiovisual communication, this project is an opportunity to delve into a shared and unpredictable process.

All video submissions will be used in the final piece, as long as they don’t infringe any of our platform’s guidelines* and relate to the topic explored in this open call.

‘Ageing from existence’ is not a project about death, or the idea of material transformation in time. Instead, our attention is on what is thrown away too soon; on people, practices and ideas that have been consumed by the aura of perceived obsolescence too often placed on socially significant parts of our lives. With the aim of shedding light on what, even when still living, active, meaningful, useful, is ignored from existence.

We see this in people and social activities, in the lack of intergenerational spaces and practices, in the segregation of the ageing population, in the inadequate support systems available to this demographic group that is rapidly growing but is still treated as a minority, in a longevity revolution that is happening but is not recognised.

We also experience these phenomena in the material world around us, with more and more of it falling into disuse due to external factors, rather than its intrinsic ability to last and function: technologies made ‘obsolete’ by an ever changing market obsessed with novelty and ‘innovation’; clothing, music, art, systems of communication that remain associated and relegated to socio-cultural contexts of the past; contents and media that are rapidly buried under the incessant production of more things to read, see, hear, know, experience; ideas, cultures, heritages that struggle to be heard in the chaotic and forgetful world of today.

This project aims to explore this urgent topic through storytelling. We will adopt an experimental and collaborative approach to content curation and visual communication to tell the stories of things, bodies and notions from an array of geographical and historical contexts. We are embarking on a challenge to assemble stories told through diverse perspectives and formats, and transform them into a coherent narrative.

We are asking for video submissions, of any format, length (min. 5 seconds), quality, or style. Submissions can be film, animation, phone videos, or any other media that can be displayed in video format.

Contributions should be made with the consideration of the collaborative and experimental nature of the project. To create a unique storytelling experience, an incremental curating process will be undertaken by the collective, where videos will be cut, edited and combined with each other, towards a unified whole.

 

*You may not submit content that: infringes any third party’s copyrights or other rights; is pornographic or promotes a sexual service; promotes or supports defamation, harassment or abuse; promotes or supports hateful or discriminatory practices; exploits or endangers minors; promotes or encourages self-harm or suicide; depicts unlawful real-world acts of extreme violence and brutality, sexualized violence, including rape, torture, and humiliation, or extreme violence towards animals; promotes unlawful or dubious money-making schemes, proposes an unlawful transaction, or uses deceptive marketing practices; conveys misleading information about socially and historically significant events, or false claims about public-health.
