This year’s theme Signals! is intended to be a connecting bracket, but not a staple. artspringnale is looking for contributions that deal with the present, which is characterised by challenges, changes and disruptions. Contributions that seek ways out of the supposed standstill or ways in. Contributions that send signals (or disturbing signals?). The works can be new or already existing ones that create new perspectives.
What do we hear and what do we see? What are we sending? These questions are also aimed in particular at the film and video art scene. The sector has been under pressure since March last year. There is no income, no funding, productions – more or less – stand still. Freedom disappears, personal encounters are reduced, frustration and depression increase, as a social phenomenon, but also very individually.
Who can participate in the artspringnale?
All filmmakers whose work focuses on the district of Pankow – i.e. Prenzlauer Berg, Pankow, Weißensee – or whose work has a local connection to Pankow.
What can be submitted?
All film genres and lengths can be submitted: Short and long films, fictional or documentary, experimental, analogue or digital, animated, performative, essayistic – all formats are permitted.
