Sheffield Fringe - Call for Submissions

Sheffield Fringe is inviting artist filmmakers from, or living in South Yorkshire, to submit works for their 2012 artists’ film and video screening series in June.

Sheffield Fringe is an artist-led curatorial project, exploring the confluence point between art & documentary practice. It was first staged as a nano festival in June 2011 to coincide with Sheffield Doc/Fest.

Sheffield Fringe was born out of a desire to create a platform dedicated to an expansive understanding of how we make and view documentaries, incorporating a multitude of suggested strategies of reform, coming in particular out of the fine art sector.

Much variation can be sited in how artists and filmmakers approach the use of actuality as a creative, political, and philosophical means for art production. We are looking for works, which inspire dialogues and playful critiques of the documentary form, of documentation, performance and spectatorship.

A selection of the Sheffield Fringe programme will be screened at MAMBA (Museum of Modern Art, Buenos Aires), and again at Angus-Hughes Gallery in London as part of a touring programme.

The selection for this call is headed by Esther Johnson.
