ArtCast: call for podcastable art

folly_trans.giffolly, a leading digital arts organisation working in Cumbria, Lancashire and online, is looking for video and audio work for ArtCast, folly’s ongoing series of podcasting programmes. The deadline for submissions is 29th February 2008

Through ArtCast folly explores the possibilities of the podcasting medium and provides a platform for public access to new and innovative art.

ArtCast, launched in October 2007 alongside folly’s VELOCITY festival of digital culture, with a series of audio podcasts selected from an international open call. This series is available to download from and has been described as “outstanding” and “unique” by those who have experienced it. Since folly first started publishing podcastable content, nearly 15,000 people have experienced art in this format via

Listen to 2007 example:

In April 2008 folly will release the second ArtCast series, in collaboration with the moves08 festival

Building on moves07’s success in positioning itself as a key platform for the industry and audiences interested in screen-based work exploring ‘choreographed movement’, moves returns for the fourth year in Manchester, Lancaster, Chester and Liverpool.

Taking place 22-26 April 2008, moves08 will showcase a three-day conference focusing on the interaction of choreographed movement and sound in screen-based work, seven international screenings including a North West showcase, a five-day filmmaking lab throughout the North West, a masterclass, live events and installations in Manchester,
Lancaster, and Liverpool. A programme of work curated for the BBC Big Screens will also be showing throughout the UK. Through its Discovery strand, moves08 will give a special place to students and emerging artists.

For April’s ArtCast series, folly is calling for submissions of existing moving image and audio work, from the broad spectrum of contemporary arts practice. Submissions should address themes and subjects broadly relating to the theme of moves08: the interaction of choreographed movement and sound.

Submissions are welcome from all artists working with film, video, moving image or sound, dancers and choreographers, experimental musicians and composers, writers and performance artists etc, basically anyone who has created work which they consider to be suitable for a video or audio podcast.

folly welcomes submissions from international artists.

moves08 Festival Director, Pascale Moyse, and Award-winning filmmaker and moves’ board member, Rachel Davies, will join folly in the selection of works in early March 2008.

Successful submissions will be published as podcasts from 3rd April 2008

Please note that there is no fee available for selected works.
