Videomotion 2023

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

With the tenth edition of 180° – laboratory for innovative art in the year 2023, we are thrilled to announce our renowned silent short film contest. This year, the captivating topic is “42”. All festival participants and contest entrants are invited to explore their own understanding of this combination of numbers.

We intentionally leave the interpretation open-ended and unrestricted, allowing you the utmost creative freedom to develop your unique vision on the topic. The only requirement for this year’s contest is that the film must be captured using a mobile phone or tablet, and it should be without sound.

Our esteemed jury will carefully select the finalists from the pool of outstanding short films. During the festival, these films will be accompanied by live improvisation performances by our talented 180° musicians. In the final stage of the competition, the audience will have the opportunity to vote and select the ultimate winner.

The 180° prize amount for 2023 is set at BGN 300.
