<nettime-ann> Last call for entries. Short Films and Music Videos for backup2007. new deadline 25th of august


.
The 9th Annual Backup_festival will take place from 18. ? 21. October 2007 in Weimar, Germany.

-------
backup.award - short films
-------
This year, once again, we are looking for young film makers and media creatives interested in submitting 
work for the international category of the backup.award and who would like the chance to win an award 
from the 3750 Euros worth of prizes we have on offer.

Backup is interested in film works that reflect and re-define the limits of short film and video and which 
explore creatively different methods and styles of production. In particular this year the festival is focused 
on the hybridisation of visual communication methods and on works which seek to break down traditional 
practices of narrative structure, production and distribution.

In acknowledgement that many works submitted will cross-over numerous traditional category guide-lines 
in their content, The Backup_Festival pre-selection committee will sort entries according to their content 
and form. Works will then be put into competition blocks that reflect their character. This frees film makers 
from needing to adhear to strict self-categorization of their creative output.  

Prizes for the best entries will be awarded by an independent jury of filmmakers, TV executives, producers, 
designers and media theorists.

The call for entries will be announced at international academies of film and art, universities, polytechnics, 
Film and Media Agencies, Film Clubs and centres of learning and culture via www.backup-festival.de

To qualify for entry into the competition, all works must be submitted in a common video format, must have 
been completed after the 1st of January 2006 and must be no longer than 15 min. in length.

The deadline for entries is the 25th of August 2007

All entries must be submitted by the 25th of August 2007 and must include a DVD of the work/s, film stills, a 
dialogue list, a synopsis, a filmography and a biography of the film maker.

award from the 3750 Euros worth of prizes we have on offer.

By awarding the backup.clipaward, the backup_festival offers an overview of current developments within 
the field of international music video culture and provides a public forum for experimental music video screenings. 
Particular emphasis is put on music videos which create an extraordinary symbiosis of film and music by 
using different forms of visual communication and production techniques.
It?s imperative to make image audible and sounds visible.

The pre-selection committee and the jury will judge ideas, concepts and the interaction of image and sound as 
well as the artistic exploration of the possibilities of music video.
