Call for Submissions: Transoceanic Visual Exchange


Fresh Milk and Footscray Community Arts Centre (FCAC) welcome submissions of recent film and video works—screenings, installations, new media and expanded cinema—by contemporary artists, to be included in the second edition of Transoceanic Visual Exchange (TVE), a series of programs taking place this year between Barbados and Australia. Submitted works must have been completed in the last five years and must be made by artists practicing in the Caribbean, Oceania, and their diasporas. Call extended to July 20, 2017.

Transoceanic Visual Exchange (TVE) will be a collection of recent artists’ films and videos from each region. However, the final shape and content of the program will be informed by a community curatorial process, which aims to involve and promote discussion within the wider arts communities of each participating initiative.

Working between the Caribbean, Oceania (Pacific Islands) and their diasporas, TVE aims to negotiate the in-between space of our cultural communities outside of traditional geo-political zones of encounter and trade. TVE intends to build relations and open up greater pathways of visibility, discourse and knowledge production between the regional art spaces and their communities.

Submission Requirements:  

Must be work from artists practicing in the Caribbean, Oceania (Pacific Islands) and their diasporas

Must be work that has been completed/made in the last five years.

Can be films of any length (shorts, experimental, features and video artworks)

Can be in any language (films originally produced in regional languages are welcome)

Multiple submissions are welcome

Must be accompanied by a description of the work (500 words max), a bio (200 words max) and detail of any technical requirements i.e. audio, installation, equipment required, preferred setting etc.

Works must be in the form of mp4 files no larger than 10MB, or private Vimeo / Youtube links
