MILAN MACHINIMA FESTIVAL 2019
VIA CARLO BO 1
20143 MILAN, ITALY
The MACHINIMA FILM FESTIVAL returns to IULM University (Milan, Italy) in March 2019 during the MILAN DIGITAL WEEK. Sponsored by the City of Milan, Department of Digital Transformation and Public Services, the Milano Digital Week celebrates the driving forces that are reshaping work, leisure, and learning. By highlighting the interplay behind production and consumption made possible by digital technology, MDW connects citizens, companies, institutions, universities, and research centers.
Filmmakers and video artists engaged in the practice of appropriation, re-purposing, and creative remix of video games are encouraged to send their work for consideration. All submission will be judged by an international panel of jurors, which will be revealed in September 2018, and a selected number will be featured in the main program.
Screenings of selected works will be curated around different themes, to be announced. All the machinima will be projected onto a screen in an auditorium-like space. The most interesting submissions are those which seek to grasp or highlight a specific facet of contemporary life - from politics to art, from violence to creativity, from technology to ideology - through the aesthetic lenses of digital gaming.
The deadline for submissions is December 1, 2018.
The full program will be announced in January 2019.
All work must be submitted through digital delivery services like WeTransfer, Google Drive, Hightail or similar.
