WHAT: open submission short film competition. The Crafts Council is asking people to submit original short films between 10 and 120 seconds long that focus on any aspect of the making process - from a demonstration of making an object or showing the use of equipment, tools and machinery to a more conceptual film on what making means to people.
WHEN: 6 September – 2 January 2012.
DETAILS: The Crafts Council and the V&A are offering the opportunity to feature in the next Crafts Council and V&A exhibition - Power of Making - by launching an open submission short film competition called Power of Making On Screen. Power of Making will celebrate the role of making in our everyday lives by presenting an eclectic selection of over 100 exquisitely crafted objects. Curator Daniel Charny has selected a range of objects including items made by amateurs, those crafted out of necessity, and some by leading international makers. Films do not need to be highly polished or professional - they can be made on a mobile phone - but they must depict the act of making in an interesting and imaginative way. All the films will be available to view on a Vimeo channel and 40 of the most creative and inspiring films will be selected to feature in the exhibition by a panel led by curator Daniel Charny.
