this is a Casual call. The first round of afronaut(a) was amazing. Many of you reached out to participate in the next series and I just want to put this out there…
CALLING ALL filmmakers, artists to screen, host, curate and perform in the next series of afronaut(a). Blaine Siegel and I are expanding the series to various locations and ending with a 2 day media festival.
afronaut(a) is really a conversation of film: traditional and experimental, the collaboration involved in film, it’s many inspirations on art and vice versa and experimental ways artists can interact with film. the series is through the lens of the diaspora because it’s inception came from the films I saw during my time in Africa. with that said, those films and this project has a very broad scope.
We are asking artists, filmmakers and film lovers, of any sort, to submit a brief proposal (a few sentences) on film(s) to be screened and how you would interact with the films shown (i.e. performance, talk, presentation of work.
travel and modest stipends will be given to participants.
