Open Call for Poster Design

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

For this year's festival edition, we are looking for a poster that creatively approaches the diverse topics related to human rights.

The design should work both as a poster and in an adapted form as a sticker and folding flyer.

It is important to us that the poster design does not fall back on the clichéd or stereotyped images and representations which are often reproduced in the human rights context. It should not be an explicit treatise or representation of human rights, in which prejudices, dualisms or power differences are being reproduced, but rather a sensitive approach to this complex topic.

“Moving away from static and fixed points of reference towards multiple spaces of meaning. Spaces between fixed categories, between the here and there, between self-determination and foreign attribution, between longing and belonging. A kaleidoscope – a diverse, fluid space of innumerable possibilities and overlaps; a reflection on movement and change, allowing ambivalence and contrast.”

These words can serve as an impetus – yet the room for interpretation can remain wide, enabling countless possibilities for creative processes and creations. There is no static guideline or direction which the artist needs to adhere to!

 

Formal Requirements:

There are no technical and stylistic requirements for the poster. However, this human world reserves the right to adapt the poster design to various types of print - in consultation and agreement with the artist.

The festival logo and all relevant information (locations, homepage, logos) must be visible in the final version of the poster and can be included in the submitted version. The logo can be downloaded on the festival’s homepage.

The poster is intended to represent the festival's identity to public and will be published in the form of various printed materials and on the internet.

A jury consisting of artists, filmmakers and this human world festival directors will choose the winning design.

Since the financial situation of the festival has changed, we have decided to increase the remuneration of the competition.

1st place: 800 €

2nd place: 300 €

International Endoscopic Film Festival

Eligibility:

Axle Contemporary seeks short video works utilizing endoscopic camera footage.

People have always been finding ways to look inside, behind, and beyond.  With the invention of the endoscopic camera we can now easily look inside holes and pipes and bodies.

Today endoscopes are routinely used for arthroscopic surgery, and colonoscopy. Plumbers have adopted the technology for diagnosing blockages, feeding borescopes deep into household and municipal sewer pipes. As the technology had blossomed, uses for the endoscope have expanded. Mechanics look inside machines, biologists look inside underground nests, and treasure hunters look into storm drains. Endoscopic cameras are now available for as little at $20.

Axle Contemporary is now pleased to announce the International Endoscopic Film Festival. A series of short films to be screened in Axle’s mobile artspace from June 12-21, 2020, in conjunction with the Currents Festival of New Media Art.

Axle welcomes all filmmakers and artists to create and submit short films (3 minutes max) for consideration for the festival. All films must use footage captured with an endoscopic or borescopic camera. Other footage can also be included. Footage can be captured by the filmmaker or repurposed from medical or commercial borescope footage.

Submission deadline:  April 17

Notification of acceptance:  May 1

File delivery by: May 15

Artifex

City:

Eligibility:

Artifex is the art show component of the International Peace and Film Festival. This will be the first year of this art component, and we're very excited about the addition. We're not looking to be yet another dull art gallery or exhibit, this is art in action, featuring the artist at work. Imagine a space where the audiences move through the exhibit space and see your finished works displayed-- while you work on your next piece. It can be sculpture, paint or pottery, but seeing it happen is critical to the theme of Artifex.

Additionally, we are working to incorporate musicians to perform solo style instrumentation in the same space, to build the environment of art in progress. 

The exhibits will be outside the screening and performance areas of the film festival. (You're welcome to sell your work, connect with new students, or make business contacts.)  While there is no fee for selected artists to participate, there is also no funding for expenses. Everyone at IPFF volunteers and the event is free to the public. If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of, let's connect.

About IPFF 2020
The International Peace & Film Festival combines the excitement of film, fashion, art and performing artists with the goodwill of cultural exchange. IPFF 2020 will feature competing independent films from 53 countries worldwide, including narrative, shorts, trailers and documentaries. The annual event attracts international filmmakers, artists and speakers to come and interact with audiences in Orlando, Florida's popular tourism district. IPFF features independent film screenings, "Artist in Progress" exhibitions along with completed exhibits from the artists, and cultural performances from international dancers and musicians. The event concludes when the Izuminka Euro Fashion Expo presents the ‘Film and Fashion’ awards ceremony, where beautiful models showcase custom designer gowns between the awards for the top films in the festival. What makes IPFF truly unique is that everything is free to the public, all participants are volunteering their time to promote Peace through the sharing of worldwide arts.

Prizes are subject to funds raised from sponsor participation. Credentials for participating artists will be provided at the conclusion of the festival, including promotion and press release details from the festival website, and our social media /Roku TV channels.

All selected filmmakers get VIP passes that allow entry into all our screenings, events and parties.

As a film festival created by filmmakers for filmmakers, Festival of Cinema NYC  has quickly made its mark on the festival circuit. Sponsored by Regal Cinemas – the 2nd largest theater chain in the United States, Festival of Cinema NYC screens over 100 films at the historic Midway Theater in Forest Hills.

Additional screenings, workshops and panels presented at the Queens Library at Forest Hills and the Queens Museum in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, offer filmmakers and guest a world class event showcasing the work of truly independent filmmakers locally and from around the world. 

Because Festival of Cinema NYC was founded by independent filmmakers we understand the needs and challenges that filmmakers face. Our festival staff is committed to offering filmmakers the opportunities they seek to promote and ultimately have their film seen and sold. Since our inception in 2017, over 10 films have found distribution through our sponsors, with many more being offered distribution deals from visiting distributors. One of the key components to Festival of Cinema NYC's success, is making sure each filmmaker and their film get the proper attention and publicity that they deserve. Our publicity department works around the clock to ensure that filmmakers get as much coverage in news and local media. Filmmakers at the festival have had their films covered in various news publications around Queens and New York City, including the N.Y. Times, the NY Daily News, The NY Post, The Queens Chronicle,  CBSN and NY1 News on Spectrum cable. Attending filmmakers are invited to participate on the official festival video podcast, hosted by New York City's largest network of independent film - The NYC Indie Film Collective.  Moreover, filmmakers in attendance each get a Q&A following their screening, giving them the chance to engage our audience. 

Additionally, Festival of Cinema NYC hosts panels and workshops that strongly appeal to filmmakers. Subjects including distribution and production resources, as well as workshops by industry leaders such as Sag-Aftra and Seed & Spark. Beginning with our 2019 edition, Festival of Cinema NYC has partnered with Cinemarket.
