Open Call for LGBTQ* FilmMakers for Cinema Conversación

Share

Country:

City:

Basic Information:

Deadline: August 10, 2018 (23:59)

Application fee: None

Cinema Conversación aims to bring the audience in direct dialogue with artists and filmmakers, thus creating a platform where thoughts and experiences can be shared freely and where the usual separation between spectator and artist is lifted. Thus, the format of the programme is constituted by a presentation of the given work that is followed by an open discussion between the artist(s) and the audience. Moreover, Cinema Conversación is deliberately focusing on LGBTQ* experiences or aesthetics and would like to facilitate an ongoing discussion about feelings, desires, issues, goals, and social, political, and artistic positions of LGBTQI* individuals and communities. 

Eligibility: artists working in any medium based in moving images (film, video, virtual reality, internet art, media art, expanded cinema, film performance, live cinema, multi-channel projection, video/film installation etc.) and dealing with themes of LGBTQ* lives and experiences.

Timeframe: monthly, starting from September 2018.
For work to be presented in 2018 you must submit it to us by August 10, 2018. 

Language: the format of Cinema Conversación includes the presentation of the given work(s) and a discussion of the work with the audience. For reasons of inclusivity and due to the international profile of the program the presentations and discussions will be in English, therefore it is important that in case your work is in another language (if it uses language at all) also add/include English subtitles. Applications should be in English as well.
 

The Call:

For the Cinema Conversación event-series the SomoS curatorial team is calling for submissions for LGBTQ* moving image-based projects.

Besides the thematic focus, Cinema Conversación is also a platform to challenge and question the rigid boundaries of film and cinema, to expand on the idea of what the cinematic arts could mean, and to experiment with the wide range of genres and artistic practices involved in moving image-based productions. Cinema Conversación would particularly like to be an open platform for young and emerging talent who could bring unique and fresh perspectives to our discussion.

Cinema Conversación will be a monthly program of moving image-based arts, starting in September 2018.

We are happy to welcome artists and filmmakers from around the globe, but please be aware that for the presentation of your work you need to be available in Berlin, Germany, and currently SomoS Art House is not able to cover your traveling costs. We can only consider finished projects, however, for the application, an excerpt(s) can be sufficient. An artist portfolio (including information about previous works and projects with visual support) and a short motivation is also a key component of your application.

Selected artists/filmmakers/performers will be invited to present their work(s) based on their availability as part of the Cinema Conversación programme in SomoS Art House, Berlin.

The dynamic selection panel comprised: Yvonne Barmettler, Natural History Museum, Basel, Switzerland; Levon Biss, Photographer; Marissa Roth, Photographer; Clare Grafik, Head of Exhibitions, The Photographers’ Gallery, London, UK; Harry Hook, Photographer; Deborah Ireland, Author and Curator; Simon Norfolk, Photographer; Paul Presley, Editor, Geographical Magazine; Lisa Rebori, Vice President of Collections, The Houston Museum of Natural Science, USA; and Ian Gambles, Director, Forestry Commission England.

“It was a sincere pleasure being a selector for the inaugural Earth Photo competition, as the submissions as a whole were very strong in terms of artistic merit, technical ability and topical relevance. I congratulate all of the photographers for entering their inspired work and thank them for supporting this important photographic competition.” Marissa Roth, Earth Photo selector

Within The Scroll - A dance/ movement invitation

Share

City:

Call for dance entries

Calling All Dancers, Movers and Expansive Thinkers!

Within the Scroll is a choreography / movement project using and questioning the unique stage of social media as a performance venue. Through this project I am interested in the following questions (and more!). How does social media connect and inspire us? Can one score be inclusive and inviting to dancers and non-dancers of multiple genres and backgrounds? Are we actually a community in our links, follows, double taps and likes? And lastly, can this project promote the investigation of where we are in real time and space while bringing positivity to inclusive dance in social media? 

Submitted videos will be shared in two ways. 1. Posted on various social media outlets and 2. edited together to make a larger dance on film project. Artists can choose between either or both options. Complete project guidelines are available at the link below.

GROUPS, SOLOS, CLASSROOMS, ALL AGES, ALL BODIES! ALL DANCE & MOVEMENT FORMS INVITED.

Submissions received February 14th through June 16th, 2018.
