MicroActs Artist Film Festival 2020
1st-31st July 2020
We are now accepting submissions for our 1st online film festival:
A one month online showcase of films that share stories from all over the world, bought together for an internet festival to create a moment of togetherness for our artist film community!
We celebrate artist filmmakers from around the globe & across genres, and, in tough times such as this, we want to continue to champion an international spirit and empathetic creativity. The selected films will be available on our website in a curated steaming showcase for the whole of July, and we are excited to be exploring this platform, dissolving boarders during 2020’s global lockdown.
...short stories...small rebellions...mini manifestos...personal fables...snippets of memory...
MicroActs is a program of short films, 6 minutes or less, exploring concentrated storytelling through moving image. From bold political expression to delicate personal memories to abstract experimental collages; MicroActs aims to create a thought-provoking, informative and diverse evening of film. Works can be narrative or non-linear, experimental or scripted, abstract emotions, comedy sketches, music videos, and more, MicroActs is looking for works that share politics, intersectional experiences and tell stories.
The aim of these events is to champion subjective & personal political moving image works, promote artist film in London, and create a community of artists & filmmakers sharing their works and supporting each other.
All filmmakers who show with us are featured in the MicroActs' Filmmaker Archive on our website, an online showcase with direct links to each artist's website/digital presence, this resource allows exposure to a whole new audience & celebrates the range of works we've screened over the years.
