Cinematheque at MediaCentre
announces the opening of Cinema_C
by launching a special call for submissions 
(can be also downloaded from

Online Cinema - Interactive Narratives 
Deadline 1 April 2005
is a new project environment going down to
experimental forms of cinema in an online context.
Until now, the spaces of Cinematheque were mainly presenting streaming video 
works of different kind and interactivity played basically rather 
a certain role concerning interface design than a conceptional component of the art works themselves. 
Cinema_C and "O-C-I-N" will focus on the conceptional role of interactivity 
as a basic component for a new film creation 
by involving the user actively in the process and progress of story telling.
The participating artist or artists collaborative 
are free to choose and develop their story and the specific way 
they allow/enforce the user to take influence on the progress of the story 
in a conceptional and technological concern, 
and these represent also the basic conditions for creating the art work 
Although, the call is mainly focussing on two digital output formats 
i.e. Flash .swf and Shockwave Director .dcr, 
which may include all possible media files (digital video etc),
also other Internet compatible and cross-platform programming environments may be considered 
on request.
The artist/artists collectives are invited to submit one work only and make the work 
online available for preview or download,
once the work is selected it has to be submitted completely including all 
files, so that Cinematheque is able to post and host the work online. 
Cinematheque is neither commssioning, nor aquiring any work, 
but hosting the art work "only", the best way to make 
the works available for permanent to the online audience.
The artists/artists collective keep all rights on their works. 
No fee!! 
These are the technological specifications for the project to be submitted: 
screen resolution: 1024x764 px (also maximum project dimensions) 
output file formats/submission format: Flash .swf/html, Shockwave Director .dcr/html, 
other formats on request 
cross platform 
project size: no limit 
year: 2001-2005 
Please use this form for submitting: 
1.name of artist(s), email address(es), URL(s) 
(in case of an artists collective plase credit all participants properly)
2. short biography/CV (not more than 300 words each)
3. 1 work/project only -->title, year of production 
a) URL of the posted work online
b) URL from where the project file(s) can be downloaded
4. work description (story included, not more than 500 words) 
5. screenshot (.jpeg, max. 800x600 px)
