SPACES: DEMOLITION – call for films / videos
In the frame of SPACES project / KIOSK residency program, between August 17 – September 1, 2012 Oberliht Association will host in Chisinau three architects’ collectives from Brno (Czech Republic), Tbilisi (Georgia) and Bucharest (Romania). An open air cinema will be installed next to FLAT SPACE (http://chiosc.oberliht.com/apartament) and a program of films related to the public spaces in different cities will be screened.
As part of the screening program we would like to dedicate one evening to the topic of demolition in urban areas. We are interested in films documenting acts of demolition in various contexts, as a result of dominant past and new politic or ideologic regimes, economic or social conditions that led to the act of demolition and thus produced new urban identities.
We call all professional and amateur filmmakers from over the world to contribute by sending us your film related to the topic of demolition in urban areas. It can be in all sizes and formats. Due to the short time we prefer to receive the films trough online services like vimeo.com, wetransfer.com, transfer.ro and others. Also if you have suggestions on films we could screen publicly we will be happy to receive them.
This is not a festival or competition. The screenings are organized in order to explore the nature of public space and its constantly changing identity. If you want to contribute to this initiative and your film fits the subject we will be happy to screen it. The screening is a non profit event. By agreeing to participate you agree to give us the rights to screen your film free of charge during the announced period.
deadline for sending the contributions is August 10, 2012
Please also send the name of the author, title of the film, duration, year of production and a short synopsis in English and/or Romanian to firstname.lastname@example.org
