Submissions are now open for Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival's seventh edition, to be held 2 - 5 March 2017. The submission deadline is 30th October 2016. We welcome submissions of experimental film and artists’ moving image in any format - short or feature length films, live cinema, installations or curated film programmes.
Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival is an international festival of experimental film and artists’ moving image. Submissions of artists’ and experimental film from any part of the world are welcome – we celebrate a diverse range of works: the visually experimental, quietly poetic, formally radical, psycho-geographical, politically activist, culturally subversive, psycho-spiritual, the alchemically volatile, the underground and bizarre. Conventional or commercial-style narrative dramas, animations and documentaries are less likely likely to be successful – unless they are truly original in form and content.
The 2016 Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, Scotland’s international festival dedicated to experimental film and artists’ moving image, will open on Thursday 14th April with the Filmmaking Symposium; an unique event that in its past 3 years has proven to be immensely successful. Open to all, and aimed at both aspiring and established filmmakers or artists working within moving image, the Symposium features talks and presentations by revered filmmakers and leading industry figures. It provides a rare opportunity to meet and mingle with a range of experts closely involved the making, funding, and distribution of experimental films and artists’ moving image, along with students and fans of the arts.
