[Nettime-bold] Vancouver Videopoem Festival call for submissions
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
V A N C O U V E R V I D E O P O E M F E S T I V A L
The Edgewise ElectroLit Centre is seeking videopoem submissions for the Vancouver Videopoem Festival-the only screening event of its kind in Canada. Get public exposure and have your work screened in a premier public venue-Pacific Cinémathèque, November 8-11, 2001. We are interested in any original, creative combination of poetry with material on videotape. Cinepoems are also acceptable provided they are transferred onto videotape format.
This event provides a much needed venue for the presentation of work in this burgeoning art form. The most innovative treatments are explored and presented. The selection of works is a broad range of mostly Canadian artists, a smaller amount of international artists and a diversity of poetic styles and video strategies. The EEC aims to develop a forum for defining, legitimizing and nuturing work in this hybrid genre and the artists who produce it in Canada. The festival components include SEE THE VOICE-a Poetry Video Workshop, two or three screenings, an awards gala and a night of performance-STAGED & SCREENED, Mixed Media Cabaret-wherein poets interact with their videopoems by incorporatiing elements of dance, theatre and music.
DEADLINE: June 1, 2001
To obtain an official VVF 2001 Submission Application Form, contact Executive Director, Heather Haley @ (604) 535-8588 or visit our web site: www.edgewisecafe.org
If accepted into the Vancouver Videopoem Festival, all successful entrants will receive a screening fee and be eligible for VVF 2001 awards. The giving of awards is intended to recognize outstanding merit and to offer the public and artists a developing standard for vidopoetry in these categories:
-Best Videopoem The Edgewise Award
-Best Direction The Vision Award
-Best Performance The Voice Award
-People's Choice The Cinémathèque Award
-The Edgewise ElectroLit Centre is a non-profit arts organization whose mandate is to make poetry accessible to all members of society through a variety of media and educational programs.
-Digitized videopoems can be viewed in the Multimedia section of the Edgewise site.
-Funding for the Vancouver Videopoem Festival has been received from the Canada Council for the Arts and is produced in partnership with Pacific Cinémathèque
