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.
