Open call for film submissions for Sonica 2012 Film Programme

Open call for film submissions for Sonica 2012 Film Programme

Sonica 2012 (sonic art for the visually minded) is a 10 day celebration of world-class sonic art, presenting extraordinary work from the UK, Netherlands, Korea, Australia & Lithuania.Sonica 2012 celebrates high quality, cutting edge sound works, each with a strong visual element. The Sonica 2012 programme will open up the genre of sonic art, making it accessible and exciting to all ages. It combines aspects of live music, visual art, opera, film, theatre and multi-media, blurring the boundaries between the different art forms and presenting innovative work by some of today’s most exciting upcoming UK and international artists.

As part of the public engagement programme for Sonica, we are inviting film submissions, a selection of which will be included as part of a film programme at the CCA and shown at other selected Sonica venues. Films will be shortlisted by Sonica, Shift and Grampian Mountains.
