TRANÅS AT THE FRINGE Festival will take place in Tranås (Sweden) from the 1st to the 8th of July 2022 and online.
The film screening is focused on experimental films and videopoems from all over the world and we are happy to open the new call for films!
Submit your film in one of these two sections:
MAGMA - OPEN CALL FOR EXPERIMENTAL SHORT FILMS
By definition, magma is a burning matter, blend of liquid and gaseous substances in a continuous state of agitation under the surface of the Earth. We are looking for magmatic forms of audiovisuals, unconventional moving images that burn on the screen, breaking with common rules of aesthetics and narrative. The festival is open to national and international filmmakers. Any film with no limitation of duration or genre is welcome to apply.
GEMS - OPEN CALL FOR VIDEOPOEMS
A collection of precious stones. We are looking for videopoems, those films that stand on the border between audiovisual languages and words - written or performed. The festival is open to national and international filmmakers. Any film with no limitation of theme or duration is welcome to apply.
And for all the filmmakers submitting to the festival there will be two more opportunities:
1. "A Poet's response to a film" - some of the selected films will have the possibility of receiving a poetic response from one of the poets participating in the festival;
2. "Filmmakers' residency" - some of the filmmakers will be selected for having the possibility to take part in an art residency in Tranås, during the festival.
(Being it a free-entrance festival, we ask you to pay a small fee for the submission of your film, in order to support the festival and make it possible to happen)
1. Dates and Place
Tranås At The Fringe - International Screening of Experimental Films and Videopoems is a film screening that will be held from the 1st to the 8th of July in Tranås (Sweden) and online, within the context of Tranås At The Fringe festival. In case of force majeure making it impossible to run the screenings also as live events, these will take place just online.
Tranås At The Fringe - International Film Festival of Experimental Films and Videopoems wants to bring in Tranås, a small town in Sweden, a quality selection of experimental films and videopoems and aims to become a cultural gathering for film lovers and professionals, to support the creation of networks between filmmakers and the local communities and to inspire exchanges between filmmakers and professionals coming from different artistic disciplines. At the same time, the screening will be held online, accessible worldwide, for the duration of the festival.
