Cinesonika call for works and papers

The first Cinesonika Festival, held by the Simon Fraser University of Interactive Arts&Technology of Surrey, Canada, is calling for works in the field of sound design and sonification for the moving image.

The theme of this international film and video festival is to celebrate the soundtrack. Usually in cinema festivals there is a fixation on movie stars, or captivating imagery, or the literary qualities of screenplays, or the abstract concepts of film theory. Sound tends to be relatively unvalorized in moving-image making. The intent of the festival is to give attention to innovative work in the creation of film and video soundtracks, and to give due credit to the importance of audio in audiovisual media. This first annual 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.

Deadline is the 1st of September for your audiovisual works, and the 31st of July for your papers’ abstract. The full paper deadline is set by the 15th of September.
