DEADLINE LOOMING FOR ADELAIDE FILM FESTIVAL’S ART AND THE MOVING IMAGE COMMISSION

Applications close this Friday for the exciting new collaboration between the Adelaide Film Festival (AFF) and three major art institutions – joining forces to commission a moving image artwork from a leading Australian artist.

The AFF has partnered with the Samstag Museum at the University of SA, Carriageworks (NSW), and the University of Western Australia Cultural Precinct to present the newly commissioned work.

It will premiere during the AFF in October 2015 at the Samstag Museum in Adelaide, and will then be presented in Sydney and Perth in 2016.

The project is a natural evolution from the outstanding success of the partnership between the Samstag Museum and AFF which commissioned and presented the world premieres of work by Lynette Walworth, Warwick Thornton and Daniel Crooks at the last three festivals [2009, 2011 and 2013].

The selected artist will be awarded $50,000 to develop their work – and will be announced later this year.

Full details of the commission and application details can be found at www.adelaidefilmfestival.org.
