BPF OPEN16 Moving Image is a new open submission opportunity for early-career lens-based artists and photographers selected by a panel of professionals.
Brighton Photo Fringe recognises that many artists and photographers now work with both still and moving images and move fluidly from one to the other. These different media require different viewing conditions. Eleven moving image works less than ten minutes long are screened continuously.
From the transportation of rare metals to sublime and technological landscapes; from Playboy in Braille to Latvian traditional singing, these films give an intriguing cross-section of contemporary moving image work.
