Experimental Motion: calling all film makers

Do you make films? Do you want to show your film as part of the Experimental Motion programme at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery this autumn?

Hove Museum, historical film making equipment, cameras, 2016Experimental Motion: the art of film innovation will explore Brighton & Hove’s success as a place for experimental film-making, and its significance nationally and internationally.  The project will result in an exhibition at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery as well as a programme of events and screenings showcasing work by filmmakers working in Brighton & Hove such as George Albert Smith, James Williamson, Ben Rivers, Jeff Keen and Ben Wheatley.

We are looking for films made by people living or working in Brighton & Hove that respond to the theme of experimental film making. These can be made using film, video, mobile phones, digital software or homemade equipment. The films must be no longer than five minutes and can tell a story, be animated or give a sense of a feeling, thought or emotion.  We are really interested in the ways people use experimental and playful techniques to make films, including interesting editing, adapting film stock or cameras and lenses, and using digital technologies in new ways. Show us something new!

Selected films will be shown at a special screening event at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery this autumn and will also feature on the museum’s Experimental Motion: the art of film innovation dedicated webpage.
