Playstation teams up with the BFI and leading audiovisual 
artists/producers Addictive TV with new-media curators Cinefeel to 
present Optronica, a hybrid of music festival and film festival 
taking place over 5 days in March 2007. Optronica explores the fusion

screenings, talks, workshops and related special events.  The 
festival will be held at the BFI IMAX and the newly renovated 
National Film Theatre, which will re-open as BFI Southbank on 1 

visual music animations / music videos / video installations

For our cinema screenings, we're looking for innovative and 
unconventional music videos, ambient and experimental work, 
animations, audio/video remixes and video cut-ups that express or 
explore the close relation of music and image.  We're open to all 
styles of music and all styles of images, be they created on 
celluloid or in the digital domain.

We are also looking for video installations that utilise this close 
relation of music and image; these can be interactive and preferably 
for a single screen exhibit. These installations will be hosted in 
one of the new BFI Southbank spaces over the five days of the event 
as part of the Optronica Lounge.

DEADLINE: Friday 1st December.

decade, has been promoting new media culture and music videos as an
