The Crafts Council is offering the opportunity to feature in Power of Making by launching an open submission short film competition called Power of Making On Screen.
This autumn, from 6 September until 2 January 2012, the V&A and Crafts Council exhibition Power of Making, will celebrate the role of making in our everyday lives by presenting an eclectic selection of over 100 exquisitely crafted objects. Curator Daniel Charny has selected a range of objects including items made by amateurs, those crafted out of necessity, and some by leading international makers.
The Crafts Council is asking people to submit original short films between 10 and 120 seconds long that focus on any aspect of the making process – from a demonstration of making an object or showing the use of equipment, tools and machinery to a more conceptual film on what making means to people.
The deadline for submissions is 31 July.
