IDEA OF A PIER SHORT FILM CHALLENGE

Win a £300 cash prize!
Artist Roy Voss describes his new site specific sculpture, currently on show at the De La Warr Pavilion, as an “ idea of a pier”. The skeletal form is a composite drawn from memories of several real piers Voss visited in the past. The sculpture’s fragility reflects the precarious nature of memory itself – fleeting, fragmented and often out of reach.
The commissioning partners De La Warr Pavilion, Grundy Art Gallery and Berwick Visual Arts are inviting filmmakers of all ages to produce a short film that conjures up their “ idea of a pier”, be that a place of adventure, coming of age, romance, dazzling engineering, ghosts, or something else altogether. The creative challenge is open to everyone, including professionals, students, enthusiasts and first-time makers.
A jury will select films to be screened at a special event the De La Warr Pavilion in January 2018, where an overall winner will receive a £300 cash prize.
