Proposals and submissions:
Our festival showcases new and experimental artists’ film and performance. We select most work for the festival from our own research, and we are always keen to see artists’ work. If you would like to send us information on your work, or submit a proposal, please first visit the archive on our website for more information about the type of projects we support then contact us at the email address listed above.
In addition to our own research we will be holding an open submission early summer 2017, to select one or two new works for our 2018 festival. Previous works selected from open submission were made by Oreet Ashery, Mike Chavez-Dawson, Louisa Martin, Rachel Reupke, and Sarah Wood.
We also stage a festival fringe programme, the Whitstable Satellite, which is a lively and popular platform for artists early in their career, or wishing to experiment and try something out. We cannot support projects financially, but we produce a brochure of events, and organise curatorial visits and networking events for participants. Please get in touch if you would like further information.
