Now accepting proposals for a new commission, in partnership with the North East Photography Network

Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival and the North East Photography Network are currently accepting proposals for a new, ambitious commission, to be presented as part of the Festival, 19th – 23rd September 2012.

Together, we expect to receive proposals from artists all over the World who are working across moving image and photography, or who have moved from one practice to the other, while the new commission will explore the overlapping terrains of moving and still images.

Following the success of last September’s event, Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival returns for its eighth annual celebration of the art of film – once again illuminating the whole town through screenings, installations and projections, in locations across Berwick-upon-Tweed and along the Town Walls, and capturing the imaginations of audiences from the North East & Scottish Borders and across the UK.

The selected proposal will be awarded £2,500 to cover artist fees and all production costs. In addition, the AV equipment needed to exhibit the work will be provided, as will technical help with install, and accommodation for the artist during the Festival.

The commission will be supported equally by Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, with thanks to Arts Council England, and by the North East Photography Network through support from the University of Sunderland.

Proposals must be completed by 10th May, and submitted using the online form. To download the Guidelines and to complete the form, please go to our Commissions page.

Meanwhile, the Festival is also still accepting moving image submissions until 29th June, with an ‘Early Bird’ deadline of 2nd April. Click here to go to the Submissions page.
