ARTCAST: CALL FOR PODCASTABLE ART

folly, a leading digital arts organisation working in Cumbria, 
Lancashire and online, is looking for  video and audio work for ArtCast, 
folly's ongoing series of podcasting programmes.
 
Through ArtCast folly explores the possibilities of the podcasting 
medium and provides a platform for public access to new and innovative art.

ArtCast launched in October 2007 alongside folly's VELOCITY festival of 
digital culture, with a series of audio podcasts selected from an 
international open call. This series is available to download from 
www.folly.co.uk/artcast <http://www.folly.co.uk/artcast> and has been 
described as "outstanding" and "unique" by those who have experienced 
it. Since folly first started publishing podcastable content, nearly 
15000 people have experienced art in this format via www.folly.co.uk 
<http://www.folly.co.uk>

In April 2008 folly will release the second ArtCast series, in 
collaboration with the moves08 festival - www.movementonscreen.org.uk 
<http://www.movementonscreen.org.uk>

Building on moves07's success in positioning itself as a key platform 
for the industry and audiences interested in screen-based work exploring 
'choreographed movement', moves returns for the fourth year in 
Manchester, Lancaster, Chester and Liverpool.

Taking place 22-26 April 2008, moves08 will showcase a three-day 
conference focusing on the interaction of choreographed movement and 
sound in screen-based work, seven international screenings including a 
North West showcase, a five-day filmmaking lab throughout the North 
West, a masterclass, live events and installations in Manchester, 
Lancaster, and Liverpool. A programme of work curated for the BBC Big 
Screens will also be showing throughout the UK. Through its Discovery 
strand, moves08 will give a special place to students and emerging artists.

For April's ArtCast series, folly is calling for submissions of existing 
moving image and audio work, from the broad spectrum of contemporary 
arts practice.  Submissions should address themes and subjects broadly 
relating to the theme of moves08: the interaction of choreographed 
movement and sound.

Submissions are welcome from all artists working with film, video, 
moving image or sound, dancers and choreographers, experimental 
musicians and composers, writers and performance artists etc, basically 
anyone who has created work which they consider to be suitable for a 
video or audio podcast.

folly welcome submissions from international artists

The deadline for submissions is 29th February 2008

moves08 Festival Director, Pascale Moyse, and Award-winning filmmaker 
and moves' board member, Rachel Davies, will join folly in the selection 
of works in early March 2008.

Successful submissions will be published as podcasts from 3rd April 2008

Please note that there is no fee available for selected works.
