Alchemy Film Festival - deadline for submissions

Dear Commonty

The next Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival is happening on the 4th-6th April 2014 (in Hawick, Scotland). It will be our fourth editon and it promises to be our best and most inspiring yet!

Our submission deadline for entries is now just one month away - 30th November 2013 - entry is free:

Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival is an international festival of experimental film and artists’ moving image. Our 2014 theme is ‘DreamLand’, focussing on film explorations of the natural world as a place of dreams, the dream of nature, and the natural world
correspondent with the subconscious world. Our theme also relates to the utopian dreams of homeland – in Scotland’s Year of Homecoming, and the Scottish Independence Referendum.

Between the Web and the Loom was a collaboration between Joan Baxter (Tapestry Artist) John McGeoch (Moving Image Artist) Claire Pen├žak (Choreographer ) Shamita Ray (Dancer) and James Wyness (Composer). It is part of a two part project entitled Loom commissoned by Alchemy in 2012
We accept submissions of short films, feature films, installations and expanded cinema events (both digital and 16mm), from anywhere in the world. We usually prefer work of a more experimental nature, though narrative films that show uniqueness in form and structure, or strong relevance to our themes, are most welcome. Please bear in mind the
overall festival theme which aims to explore mankind’s relationship to the natural world. We’re also interested in the ‘alchemy’ of film as well. We do watch everything, so please only submit your film if you think it fits.

Very best wishes,

Richard Ashrowan | Creative Director
