> Dynamic and inspired. Challenging and visionary. Provocative and
> groundbreaking. All these terms describe the Montreal international
> Festival of new Cinema and new Media (FCMM). Recognized for its bold,
> eclectic programming, the FCMM is a multidisciplinary happening that fuses
> mediums and genres. In keeping with its aim of promoting cinéma d'auteur,
> independent video, and creativity in new media, the FCMM is constantly on
> the lookout for new and original works. Innovation and exploration are the
> guiding principles of the FCMM's programming, which is divided into five
> main categories: feature film and video, documentary, short and
> medium-length work, performance and digital work.
>
> As a film festival, the FCMM has been at the forefront of the revolution
in
> motion pictures and sound for thirty years. This year, the New Media
> section returns to celebrate its fifth anniversary and to once again
tackle
> with new forms of artistic expression in the realm of digital culture. The
> Festival's Media Lounge as well as the cutting-edge Ex-Centris complex
have
> already been the hosts of an astounding line-up of new media artists,
> hosting many well established acts while remaining a springboard for local
> and international emerging artists (see listing at the end of this email).
> In order to pursue its commitment towards the development of innovative
> ways of displaying and presenting works that integrate the use of new
> technologies, the New Media section of the FCMM is calling for proposals
in
> two new categories: digital creation and performance.
>
> DIGITAL WORK/CREATION
> In its effort to join the realm of filmaking and digital culture, this
> year's digital work category will feature an international selection of
> works created on digital media or using digital image manipulation
> techniques. The FCMM is thus seeking creative works that expand the
> perspective of filmaking through the use of digital technologies.
> Particular consideration will be given to entries demonstrating audacity
> and novelty in their ability to create a happening and appeal to
festivalgoers.
> Best Digital Work -CA$5,000
>
> PERFORMANCE
> This category will showcase an international selection of performance
> pieces. Entries should be characterized by the creative, innovative and
> significant use of moving images, digital image and sound processing, and
> new technologies. The FCMM is especially interested in projects
> demonstrating innovative approaches to the presentation of interactive
> works and time-based artistic interventions. Particular attention will be
> paid to projects exploring new forms of narrative.
> Best Performance -CA$5,000
