We are holding auditions for a new experimental film project, Affective Cinema, to be screened in our building in August. Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to come to audition here at FACT over three days in May.
No prior film or acting experience is required for the audition, which will involve a simple interview for the camera. So don't worry, there is no need to prepare anything except come along and be yourself. Each audition will be around 15 minutes.
Affective Cinema is an experimental film project broken up into a series of short, atmospheric films in the art-cinema style. They are designed to explore how film has the potential to show an intimate view of the world. The resulting films won’t tell a story, instead they will offer a glimpse of the world, of individual experience and emotion.
The filmmaker is Pavel Prokopic, who began working on this project in 2015 as part of his AHRC-funded practice based PhD at the University of Salford. Inspired by the subtle moments of cinema in the work of directors like Tarkovsky, Bergman, Antonioni or Kieslowski, he is exploring the potential of film to communicate and connect with the audience beyond meaning and language and instead creating a feeling of meaning.
YOU CAN STILL COME TO FACT TO AUDITION WITHOUT A SLOT (OR IN CASE IT'S 'SOLD OUT') ON TUESDAY 15th OR WEDNESDAY 16 10AM-6PM, AND YOU WILL BE SEEN WITHIN AN HOUR.
This event is no longer running.
