InShadow – International Festival of Video, Performance and Technologies
The 7th Edition of InShadow – International Festival of Video, Performance and Technologies, an initiative of Vo’Arte, will take place from November 26th till December 6th 2015 in various cultural spaces in the city of Lisbon, Portugal.
This year’s program holds on to the past editions by containing several international and national competitions with a focus on video dance and video art, documentaries, performances and installations, including the section ‘LittleShadow’ targeting children and teenagers as well as an educational section with workshops and masterclasses designed for specialized audiences and the general public. The main objective is the creation of an open and vital dialogue by joining the experiences of established artists with the visions of emerging art newcomers.
The innovation within this year’s festival is a new category within the international competition: Animation Films. The submissions are open to films made by any animation technique, shot by any filming device and without restriction of theme or genre. Still, the films should be destined for children/youngsters (5-16) and will be selected regarding: creativity, experimental approach, topic, narrative and image, sound and editing quality. The fundamental goal of the film should be the creation of movement.
By submitting a film, the filmmakers and their schools can have the benefits of being recognized internationally, of being distinguished with an award and of expanding the artistic work outside of the home country, their projects being viewed by thousands of people. Submissions for Animation Films are open until May 31st 2015.
We would like to kindly ask you to help us sharing and diffusing this open call among (animation) film students and alumni as the participation in an international festival which receives more than 500 applications from 40 countries offers a great opportunity for future film makers.
Don’t forget: Submissions until 31 May 2015 – InShadow provokes Animation!
