visions in the nunnery is a showcasing opportunity for new and established artists who are pushing the elements of film, video and moving image practice. It is also an opportunity for audiences to engage with contemporary moving image work.

what we’re looking for:

We are also interested in performance works that relate to the moving image. Please submit no more than three works on DVD or DV tape, Pal format, a separate application form for each work and an up to date CV.

Deadline for application 16th March 2007 (by post only no hand delivery accepted)

Special requirements
If your work has its own special rig (for example 3 wall based monitors) you will be expected to supply all equipment and set up your work on the 17th May.

Please note that we have no extra equipment or technical support for performance based work.

visions in the nunnery aims to develop opportunities for artists working in film, video and moving image, to show and critically discuss work; and create opportunities for audiences to gain greater understanding and enjoyment of contemporary art work.

visions in the nunnery may use submitted and accepted work as part of its publicity to increase visions in the nunnery’s and the artist’s profile for the event / future events. Please let us know if this is a concern; work will not be used unduly.
