Call for short films to be projected on Access Space’s building in the city centre

On The Surface Of Things

Artists and film makers from the Sheffield region and beyond are invited to submit short films for an outdoor screening event on the front of Access Space’s building during an exhibition opening in late September. The event is themed around the climate crisis. Please see below for a full description.
Films must be no more than 5 minutes long and in mp4 format.
Films must be reasonably high contrast. B&w is preferable (although not a stipulation) due to the nature of the screening location. Note that we won’t be able to play any soundtrack.
Opening event Friday 20th Sept 2019, 7pm-10pm.

If you are interested in participating please email a link to the film to before the 20th of August 2019.
Please note that unfortunately we have only a small budget for this exhibition, so participation would be voluntary. All participating artists will be credited in any printed material and online in all publicity.

On The Surface Of Things is an exhibition of artworks which relate to the environment either through our dependency on it, our interactions with it, or our experiences of it. It will be an action affiliated with Extinction Rebellion Sheffield, in response to the declaration from Sheffield city council of a climate emergency.
On The Surface Of Things will include paintings, sculpture, screen-based work, films and small installations.

Curated by Sadie Renwick, Rachael Kidd and Access Space, the exhibition aims to gather in one place a wide range of contemporary voices and perspectives from the Sheffield region and beyond.

Opening event Friday 20th Sept 2019, 7pm-10pm.
The exhibition will run in Access Space’s main space from Saturday 21st September to Friday 4th October, Tuesday to Saturday, 11am-6pm. Entry is free, all welcome.
