The third annual Cinesonika 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.

Having been held in Vancouver, Canada since its inception in 2010, 2013 will see Cinesonika move outside of its native Canada for the very first time as it relocates to Derry/Londonderry as part of UK City of Culture. The festival will be jointly hosted by the Nerve Centre and the University of Ulster’s School of Creative Arts.

We are open to works in any format, including narrative, documentary, animation, experimental, and uncategorizable styles, with no minimum or maximum run time.

We are also open to proposals for installation or live performance. Send these via email in whatever format best communicates your idea at the contact info below.

follows:

• NTSC format for application purposes. If your work is accepted, we will contact you requesting a PAL DVD for the festival and conference in Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland (Feb ’13).

• We accept Bluray for HD works.

• Please LABEL each DVD clearly with: Your Name, Title, Run Time, Country of Origin, Year Produced, your email address • No Watermarks or other copyright graphics over the video content.

• No MENUS on your DVD please! Your DVD should feature ONLY the work you are submitting, and it should be set to AUTO-PLAY on INSERT.

• No LOOPING DVDs please.

• Each video submission will require its own submission form and entry fee.

  1. Is there a prize, or they didn’t bother?

  2. Just wondering how people are creating their dvds with autostart and no looping for this competition. Tried Toast Titanium and IDVD but with no luck! Sorry for the Newbie question!

  3. What a great opportunity to meet other people.
