lab/p - poetry in motion 3 - Identity is an intercultural and interdisciplinary programme of OSTPOL e.V. Leipzig and Fig Leaf Studios Alexandria with the support of Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung (MDM), Goethe-Institut Alexandria, Media Authority Saxony, (SLM) , Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen (KdFS) in cooperation with Bauhaus University Weimar, Deutsches Literaturinstitut - University of Leipzig (DLL), ALFILM - Arab Film Festival Berlin and Poetry Film Kanal.

The programme is dedicated to foster a new generation of authors and animation and experimental filmmakers. It provides an early international co-producing experience as well as the option to enhance the professional network by an intercultural exchange. For achieving this goal we will invite to lab/p - poetry in motion 3 -  IDENTITY 3 authors and 3 filmmakers who are residents of the Nile Delta and 3 authors and 3 filmmakers who are residents of Central Germany (Saxony, Saxony- Anhalt or Thuringia).

 

Topic IDENTITY

The growing diversity of society and life designs is a current topic in Egypt and Germany. The term IDENTITY attaches very private, individual as well as societal and political positions. What defines me? The place or the family or religion I'm born in? My gender?...

For lab/p3 12 artists from Egypt and Germany will collaborate in an artistic discourse on Identity.

 

Who can apply?

Applicants should be either residents of the Nile Delta - for the application in Egypt - or Central Germany (Saxony, Saxony- Anhalt or Thuringia) for the application in Germany.

Authors and filmmakers should be in the beginning of their careers and should at least have one text be published or one film screened at a festival.

 

Programme

The programme offers a continuous coaching: starting with a workshop in September in Egypt - followed by monthly group sessions - parallel in Egypt and Germany - and will celebrate its final with the premieres at ALFILM Arab Film Festival Berlin and in Leipzig in April 2019.

The 12 participants (6 teams) will be invited to the workshop in Egypt in September 2018 and the premieres in Germany in April 2019. During the development process professionals will coach the participants for the production of their 6 short films in group sessions in both countries.

The goal is to develop and finalise 6 short films in a dialogue on eye-level: an Egypt- based author will team up with a Germany-based filmmaker, a Germany-based author will team up with an Egypt-based filmmaker - for creating jointly a poetry film. The poetic text for each film should be written by one team member.

The 6 short films will be presented as special programme during ALFILM Arab Film Festival Berlin. As programme documentation a mutilingual book (Arabic -English - German) and a dvd will be published.

The programme language is English therefore participants should be able to communicate fluently in English for discussing their ideas with the project partners. Submitted poetic reference texts for the Arab jury can be in Arabic, for the German jury in German. Submitted films should have English subtitles.
