International Call for Artists’ film and video


Generous European Culture2000 funding enables ISIS Arts (UK) and it’s
international project partners BEK (Norway), InterSpace (Bulgaria) and
RIXC (Latvia) to curate a NEW SCREENING PROGRAMME around the theme of
European Identity for the Big M, ISIS Art’s inflatable touring space.

Daily, more and more European people decide to live in other European
countries. With a shifting concept of nationality it becomes
increasingly important to consider what it means to be European. Is
there such a thing as European Identity and how does it relate to
national identity?
For this programme we invite submissions of films or video works on this
theme from artists of any nationality.

Selected works will become part of the new screening programme which
will tour to the four partnering countries between May 2007 and
September 2007.
Work will be selected through open submission. In order to be considered
individual works must:

  • Have a running time of 5 minutes or less
  • Be single channel and non interactive
  • Address the project theme

Selected artists will receive an exhibition fee of € 300 (The Big M is
not a commercial venture and admission is free). Copyright remains
solely with the artist.

The Big M is a highly stylised inflatable structure that functions as a
temporary and mobile venue for the presentation of video and digital
media. Unique in both design and function, the Big M provides an
alternative to the conventional gallery setting and exhibits work by
emerging and established artists to diverse audiences.

To submit pieces for consideration please send work on DVD, CD Rom (720x
576 dpi QuickTime movie) or mini DV, titled and with a synopsis of 50
words maximum, a CV and a stamped addressed envelope (if you want your
materials returned) to:

C Sundtsg 55
9. etage
5004 Bergen

Deadline for receipt of submissions is the 3rd of February 2007
