The competition is open to persons who work in the fine arts – either due to their training at an art academy, media art academy or due to their active exhibition vitae.
KINO DER KUNST is a project of EIKON Süd GmbH.
KINO DER KUNST, a worldwide unique combination of film festival and art exhibition, will hold its third edition from April 19 to April 23, 2017. Movie theatres and museums all over Munich will present an International Competition as well as special focuses, artists talks, and multi-channel installations. KINO DER KUNST investigates the relationship between visual art and cinema, this year’s programmatic focus being the current approach of artists to fiction and narration while treating contemporary reality.
Only narrative single-channel films that feature fictitious elements and demonstrate an innovative storytelling approach can be considered. Furthermore, they must be realised at a high technical level and produced after 1 January 2015. The films may be of any length.
Films with dialogues that are not in the English language must be subtitled in English.
An international jury of artists and curators will award two main prizes totalling € 20,000. An audience award of € 5,000 will also be decided.
