Call for short-duration moving pictures : Jianghu Mobile Video - China


Lijiang Studio in Yunnan Province, China, is looking for short video pieces to be shown in the the city of Kunming in late March 2005.

The event explores the circumstances in which we see moving pictures. The videos will be shown from a mobile projecting machine,* which will travel through the city at certain times of the evening, attracting crowds and showing video for short times - anywhere from a few seconds to 20 minutes.

We are looking for short pieces from any country to be shown in uncertain circumstances, possibly multiple times. We are open to any submissions, but are generally seeking experimental work, work relating to the viewing and projecting of moving images, and work which grabs (or resists) attention.

Deadline: February 28, 2005.

Format: DVD or miniDV, PAL.

Mail to: Lijiang Studio / #85 Yuanxi Lu 2-3-202/ Kunming/ Yunnan/ PRC 650056/ tel: +86 138 8855 8345/ Jay Brown

This event is sattellite to a festival of documentary films from China

*The machine is an LCD projector, speakers, and a DVD player/computer mounted on the back of a Chinese cargo tricycle. The driver has a megaphone, and attracts people in the vicinity of an interesting place to project. Some showings will be unscheduled, some will be announced in flyers and posters beforehand.
