Call for entries for Paradise Remade

We invite your submissions for Paradise Remade, an evening of short film and video work which will take place at the Electric Palace Cinema, Hastings.

Paradise Remade aims to present works that conjure visions of paradise, taking us to all manner of lost edens, utopias, golden ages, pleasure gardens and private worlds. Paradise Remade will also reflect on the ways these improbable paradises might be visited, either through dreams, reveries, altered states, near-death experiences, fevered mystic visions or drug-induced fantasies. We encourage applicants to interpret this broad theme as freely as they like.

A variety of work will be considered, including artists' film & video, experimental film, intimate documentaries and short fiction film. While there are no restrictions on date of production or premiere status we are keen to include new and unseen works in the programme.

Films should be 10 minutes or under (although some exceptions may be made). Applicants are free to submit as many pieces of work as they like.

We prefer submissions via email, with applicants sending links to work posted on video sharing platforms like Vimeo or YouTube (please ensure the password is included if required).

Please also include a short synopsis or statement on the work, along with a list of the film's prior screenings. Applicants are also welcome to include any additional supporting material deemed relevant.
