Open Call, videoDictionary in collaboration with Impakt

TheVideoArtFoundation, in collaboration with 
Impakt Festival, is launching the second open 
call to select new works to be included in the 
videoDictionary project.

The videoDictionary is a project about the 
relationship between words and the moving image. 
It is a collection of one minute art videos that 
define a word without using any words in the 
image or on the soundtrack. The title of the work 
must be made up of one single existing word from 
the English dictionary.

At least 5 new words/works from the open call 
will be included with the help of the Impakt 
Festival. Regulations and details are available 
at www.videodictionary.org (click Submissions’)
