Incubate calls on you to send in your film for the Open Film program 2012. The Incubate Open Film Program will be filled with sent in films only.
In 2011 we did a call for films for the Open Source Film program. There was a tremendous response to this call. The films varied from hilarious animation films to independent documentaries to visual experiments. The result was an open source film program with independent and original films that fit very well in the diverse program of Incubate.
The first Incubate Film Award
This year we want the festival audience to be actively involved as well, by asking for their opinion about the films screened in the Open Film blocks. All visitors of the Open Film program will get the chance to vote for the films. The film that the audience deems best will receive the very first Incubate Film Award! Everyone can submit their film. With these entries, Incubate programs interesting blocks of film and then the audience gets the chance to ‘like’ the films screening in the Open Film Program. The film with the most likes wins the Incubate Film Award!
Are you an independent filmmaker, animator, documentary maker or video artist and would you like to have your film screened as part of the Incubate 2012 official film program? Submit your film, and maybe you’ll win the Incubate Film Award!
Films may not be longer than 40 minutes. All genres are welcome. Submission deadline is June 1st 2012. For more info contact our film curator Jantien Borsboom at email@example.com
Incubate Open Film 10 – 16 september 2012
Maker = Jury = Audience
Why are we doing this? We want to involve the Incubate audience actively in our festival. With social media like Twitter and Facebook we got the possibility to directly voice our opinion about everything, all the time. The casting of maker, curator, jury and audience is already history. With the development of the internet and social media, we all get the chance to play the part that fits us best.
We can play the part of the maker and upload our video’s to YouTube or Vimeo, or play the part of curator by selecting video’s and creating a blog or channel. We can play the part of the jury by ‘liking’ a video, which may result in the video to go ‘viral’ and to be seen by a great amount of people.
With the Incubate Open Film program, we create a similar situation within the festival.
