Hungry Eyes Festival > Open Call for Interdisciplinary Film / Performance / Installation Art (Germany)


For its fourth edition, hungry eyes festival is once again looking for artistic works that situate themselves at the intersection of film, performance and installation art and that question film in an interdisciplinary way. This year hungry eyes festival will take place 5-7 February 2021 in the urban exhibition space KiZ (Kultur im Zentrum) in Gießen, Germany, and poses the question of how cinematic works can relate to, as well as challenge that space.

A programme consisting of short film series, performative and installation works will explore what constitutes the medium of film and how cinematographic elements and working methods can be translated into other media. What can cinematic work mean in the context of installation art and performances if it does not only mean the playing of audiovisual clips? To what extent can a short film address its own form and play with performative elements? By which means does film become a field of experimentation that expands its own concept and practice in an interdisciplinary approach? From a ballet of overhead projectors, to an exhibition of flip-books, to a silent movie screening with virtual reality glasses – everything is possible.

Alongside short films, the festival seeks proposals for installation art or performances that relate in content and/or form to film, visual media, image spaces or projections. It is not necessarily required to work with video technology.

Short films receive a fee of 120€ per film, and installation art/performances of 400€ per traveling artist. The festival will cover travel and transport costs up to 100€ per artist. For short films, they can pay the travel costs for one artist per film. If required, they will organise accommodation in private flats.

Deadline: 31 August 2020
