North Lands Creative Glass Meet The Future - Female Glass & Film Makers Call Out

May and August 2020

North Lands Creative will lead on the inaugural Glass, Meet the Future Film Festival to showcase at the Toyama Glass Art Museum in May – June 2020, as part of the UK in Japan 2019-20.

We are looking for applications from female glass artists using the medium of film in their work, or documentary-style film about glass, making and materials for our Glass, Meet the Future Film Festival in May 2020.

The short film schedule looks to showcase a cross section of international diverse and engaging series of short films curated and directed by female artists and filmmakers using glass as the predominant feature.

The short films will be shown during the Glass, Meet the Future Programme at the Toyama Glass Art Museum in Japan where we will be premiering ‘The Soul of a Statue’ and a series of documentaries featuring artists across the ISGNE network.

This exciting project is Supported by British Council Scotland, Creative Scotland and Creative Europe.

We are looking for films with a strong creative narrative. And to bring together a collection that illustrates the breadth and wonder of female glass artists lives, skills, environments and materials from across the globe.

All genres are encouraged, from glass art film, documentaries, to story-led films. We are keen to see a range of approaches in glass technique, story and film-making. North Lands Creative encourages submissions from every corner of our female glass community and which celebrate the diversity of the sector.
