CALL FOR ENTRIES > International CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES Competition 2016
Also this year within the framework of the 8th International CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES Competition we invite male and female choreographers, dancers , film and (multi) media artists to develop specific visual means of expression for choreography and films in a 60-second advertisement clip.
Deadline > June 30, 2016
What is the point?
We are looking for artistic short films with an individual artistic aesthetic. They should be occupied with modern and multiple versions of choreographic strategies in films.
Choreography can thereby be caused not only by filmed body movements but also by a deliberate arrangement of movements in space and time. Choreography also means for example a moving camera, film cuts, rhythmic arrangements of pictures, moving objects, materials, colours or kinds of the landscape.
An independent, annually changing jury is responsible for the examination, selection and the awards of the prizes for the contributions. The jury consists of representatives of the international movie and dance scene.
IRIS ROTTSCHÄFER | WDR/Arte (D/FR)
ROGER MERGUIN | Chief Executive & Artistic Director, Gessnerallee (CH)
PROF. HARTMUT WICKERT | Head of Department Performing Arts and Film, Zurich University of the Arts (CH).
From all participators the jury will award five films of convincing artistic quality:
1st prize: 2.000 EUR + Cinema Prize
2nd prize: 1.000 EUR + Cinema Prize
3rd prize: 500 EUR + Cinema Prize
Additionally all winners will receive a cinema prize: If the submitted short film fulfills the technical preconditions to be shown in cinemas, it will be broadcast in Germany and Europe in the advertisement block of our cinema partners for one year.
Additionally it will be accepted for the CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES Loop if produced within the competition; it will additionally be shown by our international screening partners.
