CALL FOR ENTRIES: Moving Baltic Sea


Moving Baltic Sea is a film and environmental festival travelling
through the Baltic Sea on a sailing boat during the summer of 2008. The
ship sets sail in Rostock and then anchors in the harbours of Gdansk,
Kaliningrad, Riga, Narva-Jõesuu and St. Petersburg. At each stop, a
four-day festival presents an international short film competition,
screenings, a 48h film contest, and workshops. Films are selected by an
international jury and compete for the Moving Baltic Sea Award. The
winning film will be licenced and broadcasted by ARTE.

With the unique combination of film and environment Moving Baltic Sea
stimulates a creative process in both fields to inspire filmmakers and
environmental activists alike. Moving Baltic Sea promotes a creative
process to develop long-term innovative strategies and possibilities for
cultural and environmental cooperation. The organisation of Moving
Baltic Sea reaches across national borders: Over two years a network of
film and environmental organisations from Germany, Poland, Latvia,
Estonia and Russia is working closely together to make the festival
happen at each tour stop. German film partner of Moving Baltic Sea is
Moviemiento e.V. Based in Berlin, the travelling European short film
festival "Moviemiento – short films on the road" promotes young European
filmmakers and connects people, places and cultures by way of film and
travel. Rather than being restricted to a single location, Moviemiento
screens films open-air on public spaces in different cities throughout
Europe, which allows the festival to incorporate the unique atmosphere
of each city. Moving Baltic Sea takes Moviemiento off the roads and for
the first time onto the seas!

Send in your short films that tell Stories from the Seaside.
