  • Festival of (In)appropriation #7 Call for Entries

    By on

    Since its inauguration in 2009, the Festival of (In)appropriation has emerged as a premiere international showcase of experimental found footage film and video, attracting the work of artists who probe the limits of collage, machinima, remix, détournement, mash-up, and more.

    Co-curated by Jaimie Baron, Lauren Berliner, and Greg Cohen, and sponsored by Los Angeles Filmforum, the Festival of (In)appropriation now invites submissions for its 7th edition, to take place in Los Angeles in February 2015.

    Filmmakers and artists engaged in the appropriation, re-purposing, and productive "mis-use" of existing visual and sonic media are encouraged to send us their work for consideration. All entries must include some form of inventive (in)appropriation, whether of existing/archival film or video footage, sound recordings, still imagery, or digital media. The most competitive submissions are those which seek to produce revelations and reconsiderations of the relationship between past and present, here and there, truth and lie, intention and subversion.

    The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) is seeking applications from international (non-Canadian) artists for 4–6 week individual production residencies to take place between September 2014 and August 2015. LIFT is an artist-run production and educational media arts organization dedicated to celebrating excellence in the moving image. We support a wide range of production formats including Regular 8mm, Super 8mm, 16mm, Super 16mm, 35mm and HD; film and digital editing; optical printers; contact printers; animation stands; a darkroom and more. Toronto also offers a range of lab facilities, a large pool of experienced technicians and talent, a vibrant film community and a dynamic arts environment.

    LIFT's residency program focuses on the production of film-based works with equipment and facilities to which the artist would not have access in their local region. Artists are expected to be at an established point in their practice (although not necessarily working predominantly with film). Applicants must also consider what they would bring to Toronto in terms of community collaboration, teaching, artist talks and/or presentation activities—these engagements are a critical part of each residency offered by LIFT.
