Artists from the Caribbean and its diaspora, or artists who address these spaces and issues in their work, are eligible to apply.
ABOUT NEW MEDIA
Avant garde and experimental film and video works have traditionally formed an integral part of the trinidad+tobago film festival. New Media highlights the expanding field of visual art that interrogates our contemporary experiences in experimental forms of presentation.. Ranging from overt activist political commentary to social and personal interrogations and interventions, the works presented deviate from conventional forms of filmmaking and visual presentations.
ttff/17 NEW MEDIA THEME:
We welcome interdisciplinary collaborations and intersections of painting, dance, literature, photography, animation, moving images, projections,installations and emerging technologies on the theme ‘Bearings’. These include but are not limited to explorations and presentations of identity, globalisation, placement/displacement, migration, contemporary politics and belonging.
JURY + PRIZE:
A prize of $5,000 TT will be awarded to the submission that best captures the theme. The winner will be selected by a three member jury of an internationally acclaimed artist, curator and art critic.
All initial submissions should be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to submissions of the digital works, entrants are also encouraged to submit exhibition and installation treatments or requirements.
THE DEADLINE FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS IS FRIDAY 23 JUNE. THIS DEADLINE WILL BE STRICTLY FOLLOWED.
