International Call for Entries
*This year's Synch Festival will take place at Lavrio Technological &
Science Park during 1-3 July 2005. In it's 2nd Edition, Synch is being
expanded to include contemporary trends in the field of Media Arts. Part
of this expansion, *Synch Cinema* is introduced, as a non-competitive
short film/ video festival that wishes to present and promote works of
Greek and International film and video artists who overcome the
conventional narrative cinema while they experiment with image and sound
by creative and innovative use of new media.
For the 2005 edition, Synch Cinema wishes to gather works that
investigate the concept proposed by the festival's very own name: *Synch*.
Synch, as a concept, is central to all time-based arts, denoting the
fundamental relationship between sound and image. In synch, out of
synch, synchronization, synchronous, asynchronous: whichever approach or
free interpretation of this theme is welcome.
We invite international independent film and video makers to submit
their works so as to be taken under consideration for the selection
process for the festival's programme. Short films (less than 30min) of
every genre are welcome. Works that deviate from, or challenge
traditional genres are more than welcome. Selection shall be made
according to the innovative quality of the works, and treatment of the
festival's 2005 theme: synch. Emphasis shall be put on very short films
(less than 2min).
