For our readers: the poet, filmmaker, and novelist Faracy Grouse, whom we’ve published various times in Synchronized Chaos, is launching the Visual Jazz Film Festival, which will take place in Spain later this summer.
Here’s how the festival will operate:
All films must be conceived, shot and edited between sunrise and sunset on the day of the festival.
No money can be spent on the production.
Any music or sound effects used must be original and created within the allotted time.
All stories must be original.
No scripted dialogue allowed, however silent and non spoken films are permitted.
Completed films can be between 30 seconds and 1 hour.
All films must include some variation of the three items/concepts/words the organizers will announce three minutes before sunrise the day people shoot the films.
Films will be shown between sunset and sunrise that night, at a yet-to-be-determined venue.
