*************************************************************
Urban Screens Melbourne 08
Conference ³mobile publics² 3 ­ 5 October 2008
Multimedia exhibition 3 ­ 8 October 2008
http://www.urbanscreens08.net

Deadline for submission: 31st May 2008

*************************************************************

Urban Screens Melbourne 08 is the third, ground-breaking international
conference and multimedia exhibition in a series of worldwide events around
the redefinition of a growing digital infrastructure of moving images in
public space. It will mark the official launch of the International Urban
Screens Association and will take place 3.-8. October at Federation Square,
Melbourne. Federation Square is a unique cultural and community oriented
multimedia precinct, centred around a significant 38m2 public LED screen
complemented with other digital elements.


CALL FOR FILM&VIDEO and MULTIMEDIA PROJECTS ********************

The Urban Screens 08 exhibition is looking for Artists, Filmmakers,
Multimedia and Interaction Designers and Urban Poets,  to submit film and
videos or multimedia, interactive or participatory screen based projects. A
large diverse urban screens infrastructure is available at Federation
Square.


CRITERIA

We are mainly looking for potentially adaptable projects that interrogate
screen media as a medium|content and tackle the festivalıs key themes of
issues of either community building and reflecting on todayıs communities or
sustainability in relation to water. These two complex themes aim to provoke
discussion and spark questions such as:
 
What is a community in times of the high-speed, global flows of the new
media scape? Are we a step closer to the idea of a global community, a
global public sphere?  What are the places where a community can meet today?
The event will explore the various possibilities to engage with Urban
Screens for community building. But also how we can utilize the screens to
support the promotion of social and environmental sustainability.
 
The theme of water is bridging and connecting both of these concepts. Water
is an essential element for a liveable public space. Wells, fountains and
riversides are all social meeting places that create an engaging urban
environment for all ages, as well as influencing the urban microclimate.
Fresh water is essential for human wellbeing but has threatened to become a
scare resource. How can we explore the diversity of water, an element,
essential to the existence of life on earth?

For a detailed description of the curatorial framework see:
http://www.urbanscreens08.net/art-+-events
For a detailed description of Fed Squares infrastructure see:
http://www.urbanscreens08.net/technical

The projects should preferably employ one or more of the listed existing
infrastructure of urban screens of Fed Square and should consider and adapt
to the special circumstances of outdoor public spaces, transforming urban
spaces to foster dialogue and community engagement. We are looking for:

A) Film and video such as

-    Video art, text art, animation, animated slideshows, or fictional
advertisements and community information (under 3 min.)
-    Silent works especially for the joint broadcasting or daily screenings
in-between (under 3 min.)
-    Short experimental films, documentary and journalistic content (under
15 min.)
-    Small curated programs of the mentioned type of works

B) Interactive, performance based or participatory projects such as

-    Interactive software applications for urban screens
