Alpha-ville Festival 2011 and invites you to submit your film to this year’s International Digital Moving Image Competition. Alpha-ville is looking for work that represents the transition from digital to post-digital culture. The competition aims to participate in the ongoing debate about the effects of the digital revolution in the arts, culture and society.
The 2011 International Moving Image Competition is open to artists working across all genres of digital short film: animation (2D, 3D, stop-frame, CGI, motion graphics, etc), fiction, documentary or experimental. The competition seeks entries that demonstrate originality and vision.
Alpha-ville will award three prizes including an honorary audience award. Jury panel: Christine Schopf, co-director of Ars Electronica in Linz Austria, Mary Burke, development producer at Warp Films and Adam Woodward, website editor at Little White Lies.
“With this year theme, Alpha-ville wants to address the transition from a digital to a post-digital culture, that looks beneath technology at how human behaviours such as collaboration, participation and interaction have redefined the creative practice and society itself, and at how the physical boundaries between reality and online are blurred. Alpha-ville joins the discourse about post-digital initiated in 1998 by visionary, thinker and founder of the MIT Media Lab Nicholas Negroponte who pushed the edges of information to predict the future of our culture.” Estela Oliva, Alpha-ville founder and director.
Deadline for submission is Friday 2nd September.
Animate projects, along with Little White Lies, Shooting People and Vimeo, are media partners to this years Alpha-ville Festival 2011.
