Announcing…the 2005 Third Coast Festival ShortDocs Request for
Proposals

The Third Coast International Audio Festival seeks to honor traditional
documentary radio work and also stretch the boundaries of the audio
format. It’s in this spirit that we’ll be commissioning the 2005 batch
of ShortDocs stories about…GAMES.

Producers and audio artists from all over the world are encouraged to
submit proposals with their story ideas about ‘GAMES.’ The Third Coast
Festival staff will oversee the production of four proposals chosen from
the pool of submissions. These ShortDocs will premiere at a Third Coast
Festival Listening Room event in Chicago and producers will present them
at the 2005 Third Coast Festival Conference.

Remember-we’re looking for a range of stories about GAMES – from literal
to metaphorical, from narrative to experimental, from serious to
playful. Think manipulation, think D&D, think “the thrill of the chase”
… think politics, think of the long-standing traditions of courtship,
think of the loudest aisle at Toys R Us. Think about extra innings,
think the agony of defeat, think “You sunk my battleship!”… Consider
all of these suggestions and think far beyond them – and then send us
your proposals for stories about GAMES. If you have any questions about
your proposal idea, contact info@thirdcoastfestival.org

Proposal Information:
NOTE: Please do not submit a proposal unless you can commit to attending
the Third Coast Festival Conference in Chicago, October 20-22, 2005, and
presenting your work. (we’ll help you get here.)

TOPIC
Each ShortDoc must relate in some way to the notion of GAMES. Any and
all interpretations of this topic are welcome.

 

LENGTH
Programs must fall between 5 and 7 minutes in length.

RIGHTS
The Third Coast Festival will request non-exclusive rights for all
commissioned work. The finished ShortDocs may be featured at
http://www.thirdcoastfestival.org/, as part of the Third Coast Festival Listening
Room series and other public events, in the Third Coast Festival
Broadcast, and/or in the TCF’s weekly show Re:sound.

PAYMENT
Producers will receive $600 plus a traveling stipend of up to $400,
accommodations and automatic registration for the Third Coast Festival
Conference.

IFC-Mission Statement (since 2005)

Dear friends of the International Feature Conference As you all know during next IFC in Sinaia EBU – in the person of Laurent Marceau – organises the elections for the EBU Radio Feature Project Group (for the rules please see the elections rule

the Project Group’s statement

The EBU Radio Feature Project Group (RFPG) stimulates the development of the radio documentary/ radio feature by the international exchange of knowledge, skills and experience.

It brings different generations of documentary makers with different cultural backgrounds together at the yearly International Feature Conference (IFC), to stimulate a process of learning from each other by listening, analyzing, debating and workshopping in surroundings of confidence in each other’s qualities.

The Project Group also stimulates the improvement of professional skills of young professionals by special training programmes (like the EBU Master School) or financial support to join the IFC (Ake Blomstrom Grants).

The Project Group – in close cooperation with the organizing public broadcaster – is responsible for planning the IFC: sets the agenda, selects the programmes for listening sessions, chooses themes for workshops, and compiles the discussion groups and their moderators.

Members of the RFPG are chosen by EBU elections for a two-year period.

Nous sommes heureux de vous faire part de l’ouverture du 11eme concours phonurgia nova.
Merci de diffuser cet appel.

(((appel a projets / le son fait art)))

Tailler, monter, mixer, fixer, spatialiser… Le son a la puissance du cinéma, il n’en a pas la lourdeur.

Parmi les rendez-vous de la creation en France, le concours Phonurgia Nova occupe depuis 1986 une place a part en mettant a l’honneur les artistes qui explorent le son comme media du reel et de l’imaginaire. En 2003, 150 productions venant de 19 pays ont ete reçues.

Pour cette nouvelle edition, le jury distinguera des auteurs manifestant un sens aigu du son et de l’ecoute comme moyens d’expression, dans deux domaines :

A) « Arts de la radio » considerera toute forme creative : documentaire, fiction, essais, mix, horspiel, radio experimentale, etc…
B) « Nouveaux medias » recompensera des « installations » accordant au son une place prépondérante, ou bien des creations basees sur les nouveaux supports, telephone portable, audioblog, site web, etc,

Dans chacune des deux categories, le jury considerera deux types de propositions :
1) des productions finalisees
2) des projets

>>>Les Prix
Un Prix Arts de la radio et un Prix Nouveaux medias dotes chacun de 1 500 euros, + 3 Résidences de creation au GRM de l’INA, à l’IMEB et au GMVL. 10 propositions, ainsi que les créations issues des Residences, feront l’objet d’une presentation en Arles en 2006 dans le cadre du 3eme Festival de l’Ecoute. D’autres prix pourront alors s’ajouter.

<>>Archives
Toutes les Å“uvres selectionnees sont conservees pour constituer une archive permanente d’art audio. Ces archives seront ouvertes au public pour une consultation.

<<
La date limite de participation est fixee au 1er septembre 2005. La proclamation des resultats aura lieu le samedi 1er octobre a la Maison du Geste et de l’Image, a Paris 1er, a l’occasion de NUIT BLANCHE.

Thanks to spread this information.

(((call for works/sound is art)))

Chisel, cut, mix, set in spaceSˇSound has the power of the cinema and is lighter

Among the prizes awarded for acoustic creation, the  Phonurgia  Nova competition has, since 1986, occupied a special place by virtue of its recognition of artists whose work exploits sound as a medium for expressing the real and the imaginary. In 2003, 150 productions from 19 different countries were entered in the prize.

This year’s competition will distinguish authors whose work manifests a keen sense of sound and listening as means of expression, on two areas :

A) Radio Arts will privilige all forms of inventive radiophonic creation: documentary,
fiction, essays, interviews, radio mix, Hörspiel, experimental forms etc.
B) New Media awards will go to sound installations or sonic works which have been specially created for “new media” to bring new experiences in sound art to listeners – mobile phone, audioblog, podcasting, web site.

In each category the jury will deliberate on two types of work :
1)completed productions
2)projects

>>>Prizes
One Radio Arts prize and one New Media prize  each of 1 500 euros and 3 artist’s residencies at  GRM-INA (Paris), IMEB (Bourges) and GMVL (Lyon), 3 major studios for electronic music and sound art internationaly known. Ten works will be selected for presentation at the third Festival de l’Ecoute, Arles, 2006. Additional prizes could be given at this time. Certain works will be broadcast by the organisations and radio stations associated with the Festival.

<<>Deadlines
The closing date for registration of entries: September 1, 2005. Results will be announced on Saturday, October 1, 2005, in Paris at la Maison du Geste et de l’Image.

>>>Sound archives
All the materials received will constitue a permanent archive of audio works. This archive will be opened to the public.
