NO ENTRY FEE this year! Deadline.
This second annual festival will showcase international works of film and video with fascinating soundtracks, idiosyncratic sound design, eclectic scoring and innovative approaches to the sound-image relationship.
Please note that, while we are very happy to screen experimental works, we are also looking for video works with strong sound design in narrative, documentary, and animation styles as well. We review features and shorts (no minimum or maximum run time). We are also open to older works that are still deserving of a wider audience (e.g. your work doesn’t have to have been produced in the last two years).
Because CINESONIKA is now international, we require TWO DVDs, one each in PAL and NTSC.
All Videos should be formatted as follows:
• Please LABEL each DVD clearly with: Your Name, Title, Run Time, PAL or NTSC, Country of Origin, Year Produced, your email address
• No MENUS on your DVD please! Your DVD should feature ONLY the work you are submitting, and it should be set to AUTO-PLAY on INSERT.
• You may submit multiple works- each should be on their own pair of DVDs, however (PAL & NTSC). This aids in screening (you should help us because we are helping you by NOT requiring HDCAM for smooth playback in a festival).
• No LOOPING DVDs please.
• Include a printed write-up which provides an artist statement about the work, and short bio(s) of the artist(s) involved in producing the work, as well as your contact information.
If your work is accepted, we will ask you for a short video excerpt for online preview to be sent by email link.
Artists accepted into CINESONIKA will have the opportunity to have their work distributed and exhibited internationally (e.g. DVD release). There is also a CINESONIKA issue of the academic journal The Soundtrack, which offers significant international exposure to artists featured in CINESONIKA.
Please mail your DVDs to:
250-13450 102 Ave.
