Call for work: Living With Buildings festival

Living With Buildings logo

From FilmFreeway:

A festival of films exploring how people interacts with buildings and urban spaces in the public realm. We aim to screen short films/poetry film that investigates how we experience the build environment.

[LIVING WITH BUILDINGS is brought to you by the Disappear Here poetry film project]

We’re looking for work up to 5 mins in length, anything between the poetry-film, experimental, short-documentary strands of film-making. The project is rooted in the UK city of Coventry, famed for its ringroad, modernist architecture and reinvention as a city rising from the ashes and ruins of arial bombing in World War Two – we are happy to consider work from citizens all around the world.

The psychopathology of underpass and overground.

Floating towers holding up the sky.

Living With Buildings.

Finding our way(s) through the subterranean culture and dead roads with no ending.
Exploring internal tensions between regeneration and gentrification.

Remaking and remodelling urban spaces as forces of commerce or gentle revolution take hold and fight for ownership.

Where does the citizen fit into these processes; and how do we interpret or express their experiences of the ground shifting beneath their feet.

Please submit one film only – max five minutes in length – we will consider longer documentary work – but please enquire first.

Films must meet the subject theme – this is open to interpretation but expect film-makers to read the submission information for guidance.

The project selection decisions are final.

The deadline is 6 April. £5 to submit, or £4.50 if you’re a student. Here’s the link.
