The PhotoPhore, proud screening partner of the Microwave 2016 festival, opens its call for artists “ULTRA WATER FLOW”
We are searching for video-art works, short movies, digital and animation films, to include in our official selection for the Microwave International New Media Arts Festival 2016 in Hong Kong. The screening will be part of the festival programmed from the 03rd to the 12th of June 2016 and it will be hosted at the Hong Kong Design Institute.
Deadline for submissions: April 30, 2016
The festival and the selection are developed around the theme of the WATER and its FLOW, exploring the symbolical and metaphorical meanings of it, as well as how we understand and interpret the power of this life force. Starting from the element of water, we are interested in analyzing the reflections of its qualities and characteristic in our life. ULTRA WATER FLOW is a stream that flows, not only a stream of water but a flow of connections among spaces, people and things. A flow that brings information and beauty, able to reach everyone and to change and improve realities and situations. The flow of time, the flow of pictures and memories in the time. An endless flow of people and pieces of existence.
Selection is open to works which underline the relations between art, science and technology too.
To take part in the selection, please send us by email the following materials:
– video works (as a link or file in MPEG, MP4 or AVI format)
– your name, surname and nationality
– title of the work submitted, year of realization, brief description and still images
