An open call has been issued by the trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff) and ARC Magazine for artists working in video art and experimental film to submit works to be included in the second annual New Media programme.
New Media takes place from 21-28 September at Medulla Art Gallery in Port of Spain, Trinidad, as part of the ttff/12 (19 September-02 October), and is supported by the Ministry of Arts and Multiculturalism. Artists from the Caribbean and its Diaspora, as well as artists who address these spaces in their work, are eligible to apply.
ABOUT NEW MEDIA
Video art/experimental film has been at the forefront of contemporary art practices for the last four decades and has developed in parallel with advancements in technology and globalisation. Artists whose work pushes and blurs the boundaries between film and art while exploring new themes and concerns are encouraged to apply.
THE DEADLINE FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS IS 15 MAY 2012.
The ttff is held annually in September and is presented by Flow, given leading sponsorship by RBC Royal Bank and bpTT, and supported by the Trinidad & Tobago Film Company, the National Gas Company, the Tourism Development Company, the Tobago House of Assembly and the Ministry of Arts and Multiculturalism.
