Playing Identities, Performing Heritage invites submissions of films – from documentary makers, students of film, theatre lovers, audience members and whoever wishes to take part, amateur or professional – to take part in the Playing Identities mash-up competition.
The mash-up competition is a chance for the performance project Playing Identities, Performing Heritage to find a new life, new people and new visions through documentation: instead of montaging our material from inside the project, this is an open call to people from outside to re-imagine and rework our video and audio material into new works that document the project while also leading it into new directions.
Authors can submit films in one or more of the following categories:
- Medium-length film. Films of a duration of 30 minutes. Prize: Eur. 1.500
- Short film. Films of a maximum duration of 15 minutes. Prize: Eur. 1000
- Trailers/clips. Films of a maximum duration of 3 minutes. Prize: Eur. 500
The films will serve both as documentary materials chronicling the Playing Identities, Performing Heritage project and as documentary/art films in their own right. Authors are encouraged to approach the task in the key of a creative response: while using the original themes and documentation from the project, authors are also free to incorporate other video material.
Winning films will be published on WelcomeTheatre, an online platform that aims to promote the diffusion of Theatre plays
