International Video Festival DIGITALBIGSCREEN 2016
Trbovlje New-Media City (TNM) –a call to video artists
Zavod za kulturo Delavski dom Trbovlje, 13. –15. 10. 2016
Submission deadline: 1st July 2016
The digitalization in cinematography is finally finished in Slovenia. It enables presentation of new contents in a cinema theatre; amongst them also the video and all its derivatives/variations like video document or video performance. Until now video artists have been tied to TV or LCD screens, or screenings on smaller formats. Technical possibilities have therefore been a limiting factor. The international video festival Digitalbigscreen offers the visual artists engaged in video production the possibility to have their works shown on a big cinema screen.
Compilation of selected videos will be also offered to Art Cinema Network of Slovenia (AKMS) to present as a part of their art cinema program.
Herewith we address the interested video artists to submit their works to our open call DIGITALBIGSCREEN 2016 of the following general conditions:
- no limitation of topic
- maximum length 10 mins
- horizontal format (16:9)
- 720p / HD (preferred) resolution
- year of production: 2014, 2015, 2016
- maximum three works per author
Deadline: Send your works on DVD / USB (non-returnable) by the 1st July 2016 (date of postal stamp) to the address below:
