This open call invites proposals or provocations that go beyond the parameters of the festival’s screenings and exhibition presentation.

Where: Limerick, Ireland

When: 9 – 11th November 2023

Deadline for applications: Friday 31st March 2023

Following the recent open call for films and gallery works for our 2023 festival, Light Moves is delighted to announce a call for proposals for its Open Format presentation platform.

This open call invites proposals or provocations that go beyond the parameters of the festival’s screenings and exhibition presentation. Proposal may include discussion forums, exploratory workshop, performance-lecture, interviews, talks, reading groups, listening sessions, sitting or walking sessions, broadcasts, parties, podcasts, publications, research-orientated projects. These can be programmed in studio, on stage, online or outdoors.

We invite dance artists, screendance makers, arts practitioners, scholars and all those contributing to dance, film and media arts to share proposals with us. We will consider the ideas in relation to the emerging festival programme of events. The Festival’s 7th programme is developing while reflecting on these words: Noticing, Welcoming, Instability, Degrowth, Dissolving, Expansion and Nature. We are curious how your work and proposal might consider these words as ideas, and how the festival might situate your proposal as an offering to the festival community to experience, question and play alongside.

Selected proposals/provocations will be programmed during the festival and will be offered a fee to develop and present.

Submissions

If you would like to address and imagine a topic of interest or concern in the field of dance, screendance, film or media arts please submit your ideas to us. This can be as an individual or a group. These initial expression of interest should include:

Points to note

-Please propose a duration that is relevant to your idea.
