The creative team behind the Great Exhibition of the North has unveiled a unique opportunity to develop creative content that will be showcased to the world as part of one of England’s biggest events in 2018.
The narrative behind the exhibition derives from Preston’s industrial heritage. Where the imagination wanders and machine type sculptures take on an almost ambiguous presence between sci-fi and urban decay.
Open call for submissions- Quays Open Day
Northern Artist Film Programme- 1st November 2014 Deadline 4 July 2014
To celebrate our second Quays Open Day, a free curated programme of events throughout the Quays, we will be featuring screenings of dynamic and groundbreaking artist work on screen.
We are looking for artists and filmmakers in the North of England who are pushing the boundaries in artist film. We want to showcase a range of new, inspirational and challenging film art from emerging northern talent. We want excellent work that captures the imagination of the public, many of whom would be new to artist film.
A number of Arts Council Unlimited commissions were shown in Liverpool between 21-31 August as part of DaDaFest 2012. We took the opportunity to make some short films about three of those commissions while they were being presented in Liverpool. You can now watch and listen to those films and find out more about the Unlimited projects of Laurence Clark, Fittings MultiMedia Arts and Rachel Gadsden.
Sunday June 10th, 7.30pm till Late, Kraak, 11 Stevenson Square, The Northern Quarter, Manchester M1 1DB, UK, admission £3 (Free for screening filmmakers)
Summer is ycummen in. It’s a time for holidays in the sun, music festivals, morris dancing, pagan sacrifices. And it’s a good time to be making films. The one time of year where the skies might not be overcast, where it might actually be possible to shoot outdoors without it raining, without the aid of artificial illumination to counteract the lack of sunlight. But even if it does rain, there’s no reason not to be filming. Filmonik has a screen all ready and waiting for you.
