CINESONIKA has just put out a call for submissions. It is a new festival, but it would be great to see work by Ottawa/Gatineau artists in it. It will be held Nov. 12th-21st, 2010 in Vancouver. The deadline for submissions is September 1st, so you’ve got all summer to get creative!

The theme of this international film and video festival is to celebrate the soundtrack. Usually in cinema festivals there is a fixation on movie stars, or captivating imagery, or the literary qualities of screenplays, or the abstract concepts of film theory. Sound tends to be relatively unvalorized in moving-image making. The intent of the festival is to give attention to innovative work in the creation of film and video soundtracks, and to give due credit to the importance of audio in audiovisual media.
This first annual festival will showcase international works of film and video with fascinating soundtracks, idiosyncratic sound design, eclectic scoring and innovative approaches to the sound-image relationship.
