onedotzero’s open submissions scheme is one of the few that remains free to enter, enabling the best up-and-coming talent from around the globe to be presented alongside world-leading creative luminaries.
the festival is a visual ideas lab revealing future directions in motion, featuring new and specifically commissioned works; liberating talent to present new moving image possibilities and encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration across all aspects of moving image and other complementary artforms.
this year’s ambitious programme will bring the best of previous programme strands alongside new categories and activ ities based on the theme of citystates, which will engage audiences, industry and media with an in-depth exploration of city life, insights and culture.
