Created, among other purposes, to defend non-standard aesthetics, politically engaged films and different sexual representations within moving image practices, the Collectif Jeune Cinéma seeks to enrich its catalog of contemporary works to give continuity to its history.

    The works we seek are not limited to the themes of gender and sexuality ; this call concerns all filmmakers who invoke and/or defy these identities in demand of a fresh and original view of the world and that seek a unique language through formal, narrative and poetic experimentation.

Together, they will produce short film experiments that will be premiered on the very last day of the festival. The working method of the workshop is collaboration, reflection and sharing with fellow participants, with the aim of learning, exploring and developing creativity together. 

    This year’s approach wishes to encourage and support the relationship between film, music and mapping, aiming to render obsolete the gap between the screen and the audience by making the whole process - from conception to screening - a great interactive experience for all those involved.

  • Videofocus 10th Edition International Call

    By on

    Since its foundation, Stigmart10 has encouraged a conception of art based on a dynamic dialogue between artists and audience which reflects the interactive nature of the creation process itself. Due to the advent of technologies like DSLR and microbudget cinecameras, in the last decade it came a true revolution in the video field. The fusion of differents worlds, like videoart, experimental cinema, and even fashion video and corageus documentary is attested by the increasing number of videoartists cooperating with filmmakers in the last decade, though this synergy is not limited to the improvement of the overall quality in mainstream cinema terms, but shows the great potential of a new generation of artists able to renew the cinematographic language itself from the inside.

    Whether it falls under the heading of artfilm or experimental movie, you are invited to submit your work to the Biennial Edition of Videofocus, our special Stigmart issue focused on video. A special section of our next issue will be dedicated to cinematographers: it is possible to send your reels too.
