Videomotion 2022

open call for short-mute videos recorded with a mobile device

With the ninth edition of 180° – laboratory for innovative art we once again announce our already well-established silent short film contest. This year the topic is “existinct”. All participants in the festival and the contest are challenged to search for their own notion of this abstract word created by us.

We do not concretize nor contextualize it so as to give you all the creative freedom to develop your interpretation and directorial vision on the topic. The requirement this year is that the film must be shot with a mobile phone or a tablet and must be with no sound.

The jury will select the finalists among the short films, that will be accompanied by live improvisation performances of our guest musicians during the festival, and at the final stage of the competition the audience will choose its winner by voting.

The 180° prize amount for 2022 is set at BGN 300.

Who can participate?

Professionals and amateur film makers – to enter the competition you must be at least 18 years old, and you must reside in Bulgaria.

What are the requirements?

Shoot a silent short film (up to 1 min.) on your interpretation of the “existinct” topic. This year’s requirement is that the videos must be filmed with a mobile phone or a tablet and with no sound. Send it to us by 20 July via our form here.

International jury will select the finalists.
