Right in the middle of a world-wide
taking the best of
moves09 <http://www.movementonscreen.org.uk/m09/> as far as Glasgow,
Australia, Hungary, Spain, Brazil or Russia *moves *returns to the North
West.  Showcasing the most recent and fascinating works that examine
movement on screen * moves*   will takeover the renowned cultural centre The
Bluecoat <http://www.thebluecoat.org.uk/> (Liverpool) from* 21 to 25 April
2010. *

Established in the North West of England, *moves* is the largest exhibition
platform in the UK for experimental short film and new media with a unique
focus on movement on screen, exploring new ways of telling stories through
films, installations and screen-based works.
moves10 is preparing for its 6th edition in April 2010 with a new and
exciting programme going more international than ever and presenting work
indoors and outdoors, featuring international screenings, talks, interactive
installations, workshops and live events.
*NEW! *
 This year you can win a tour accross Europe to present your work with
the * Alternative
Routes Award* <http://www.movementonscreen.org.uk/page.asp?id=2838>*
!*(see below)
* *
*moves* is now inviting artists to submit their work for inclusion in the
2010 festival programme.
moves10 expands the open call and * welcomes screen-based installations* as
well as films and papers exploring movement through its context.
The works must have been completed from January 2008 onwards.
By participating in moves10's open call you and your work might get the
chance to be part of this exciting networkand tour across Europe!

Under the theme “*Framing Motion*”, the festival will explore how
practitioners choose to frame movement through their choice of setting and
context, viewed through the eyes of the director, choreographer,
animator,... in defining the boundaries for screen-based works. These can be
real worlds or imaginary, abstract, impossible or augmented environments
defined by a specific visual intent.
In looking at methods of capturing a sense of pulse and energy, we also
investigate definitions of stillness. Rather than contradicting our central
motif, it is the dialogue of pause-and-release through which motion occurs:
capturing - if only for a moment - the essence of life ablaze.

* Alternative Route Awards*
*moves* is part of Alternative Routes, a European network to encourage the
transnational circulation of artistic and cultural works, developing a new
route for experimental screen-based work in collaboration with three
festivals in Hungary, Iceland and Portugal.

*AR Prize:* Win a tour that will take your work as far as Iceland, Hungary
and Portugal.

*AR Tour:* Your work might get selected to be showcased in all of the four
festivals accross Europe.
