[artinfo] [UNXposed] call for proposals ( ( ( o ) )()o )
Tue, 21 May 2002 11:35:57 +0200
This year's 19th Kasseler Dokumentarfilm- and Videofest will take place
November 13 - 17, 2002. The Kasseler Dokumentarfilm- and Videofest is a
festival which aims at providing insight into current international
documentary filming and video work. We intend to present critical,
ambitious and entertaining documentary films and videos committed to both
reports on current affairs and off-beat topics.
The video section of the Kasseler Dokumentarfilm- and Videofest is also
interested in experimental and artistic videos, which reveal the use of
video specific means.
The exhibition MONITORING - organized in cooperation with Kasseler
Kunstverein and Kulturdezernat/documenta Archiv - presents media art
installations and sculptures. The entries should include a detailed sketch
of the project and a list of the technical equipment needed.
DEADLINES AND CONDITIONS
We look forward to receiving your new works - produced in 2001 or 2002 -
until August 15, 2002. If the original version is neither in English nor in
German, you should subtitle you work or include a text file in English.
The selection will be finished by October 15, 2002. We will inform you
about our decision soon after. If your work is selected, you will be
contacted for a screening copy.
For the first time this year, the Cultural Affairs Office of the City of
Kassel will provide a cash prize in the amount of EURO 2,500 for an
exceptional documentary work from a young director. Documentary works in
all film and video formats are eligible from directors not older than 35
years of age.
For supporting the Media development in Northern Hessen, an outstanding
regional production is going to be awarded with a prize worth of EURO 2,500
sponsored by the local daily newspaper Hessische Niedersaechsische
The Werkleitz Gesellschaft e.V. - Zentrum fuer kuenstlerische Bildmedien
Sachsen-Anhalt - assigns the "Werkleitz Projektstipendium", a grant
providing technical support worth of up to EURO 4,000. The aim of the
"Werkleitz Grant" is to honor and support artists which works indicate in a
very special way the innovative use of digital media.
This year's interfiction conference including lectures, presentations and a
seminar focuses on the topic "arteFaction! Mistakes in/as Media". To be
discussed are not only artistic productions with and without authors but
also and especially difficulties and errors of all sorts occurring in
transmission and the possible benefits and drawbacks of such manifestations
for electronic culture. Watch out for the upcoming call for papers or
projects online at www.interfiction.net in May 2002.
Again, the Kasseler Dokumentarfilm- and Videofest will cooperate with oVid
- the internet database for experimental film and video art. For further
