Process of cinema digitalization, which at last is starting also in Slovenia, enables us to view new content in cinema halls. That includes video and it’d derivations (video document, video performance …).

Until now video artists were limited to TV screen, LCD or small screen projections – smaller formats. There were technical limitations to their possibilities.

Digitalbigscreen Festival 2010 (TNM) is turning these positions upside down. We offer video artists a possibility of presenting their works on big cinema screen, which enables them an insight into contemporary visual practice in a new way.

Therefore we are issuing this call for video artists to send their works for participation at the festival.

We shall select works of twelve (12) artists whose works will be presented at the festival. It will take place in cinema hall of Delavski dom Trbovlje; a hall with 360 seats and 5×8 meter cinema screen. Because of our networking in Art cinema network and cooperation with Europa Cinema, this festival has a special significance: all production featured at the festival will be for the second time in Slovenia presented also as a part of Art cinema content in Europe and the world.

By entering the author agrees his works to be shown at DIGITALBIGSCREEN and distributed and shown in cinemas around the world.
