Shift the scene

July 31st, 2006

Aiming to address the under-representation of work by Afrikan Caribbean and Asian artists being made and seen in the People’s Republic, South West Screen and Kuumba are once again looking for people to be part of their rather lovely Screen Shift initiative.

Tenderly fashioned to encourage Afrikan Caribbean and Asian bods to create new films by working collaboratively across artforms, the scheme encourages artists to incorporate dance, poetry, sound and (yikes!) visual sculpture in their movies.
It also offers nine research and development awards and three of these will be commissioned as short films and premiered at Split Screen, the South West’s first dedicated Black and Asian Film Festival, in October.

The deadline for applications is September 1 and all the relevant information is, of course, on the South West Screen website.

Now all we need is a scheme to address the lack of female directors in the region…
