Arctic: Call for Films!
SUBMISSIONS FOR ARCTIC FILMS (Now Closed)
Highlight Arctic is a project which seeks to celebrate art and culture from the circumpolar north through a series of multi-art events taking place in the UK and the Arctic: including music, films, literary performances and workshops. The main aim of Highlight Arctic is to challenge existing stereotypes UK audiences have of the High North, and to bring forward the voices of those living and working in the region.
We are currently looking for feature-length and short films produced in the Arctic regions or which in some way relate to them. We are open to all forms, techniques and styles.
Films will be screened as part of the Highlight Arctic Film Festival in March 2017. Some films may be screened prior to that, subject to agreement.
