The Ottawa International Animation Festival (OIAF), North America’s leading animation film festival, is now accepting film entries for competition in 2018! Entries are due May 25 and there is no entry fee.

Animated Feature.

Student Animation.
Commissioned Animation (series, commercials, music videos).

“Well, it’s that time again when Ottawa is pleasantly bombarded with a feast of animation wonders from around the globe,” says Chris Robinson, OIAF Artistic Director, “This is always an exciting time for us as we watch all the new submissions and slowly start to see the festival’s identity for the year being formed. We’re particularly excited about the brand new VR animation competition. It’s a testament to the quality of work being done in this new medium that we’ve decided it warranted a competition. Viewing and judging the VR entries will also require us to engage these projects in a whole new manner (goggles and interactivity!).”

Each year the OIAF receives more than 2,000 entries that are reviewed by the Festival’s programming team. Approximately 150 films will be chosen for Official Competition and Out-of-Competition Showcase screenings.

White Rabbit is a 7-day interdisciplinary residency set in a rural
landscape on the edge of the Bay of Fundy in Economy, Nova Scotia.
The residency is process focussed, encouraging artists to create work
that is responsive to their environment. During the week-long
residency, participants work with their initial idea as a malleable, living
thing, and allow it to take shape as they engage with the Red Clay
landscape. Residents are free to wander through orchards, stream
beds, tall forests, hills, meadows, and shorelines and to make their
work in whichever location they are most drawn to.
Artists from a broad range of disciplines are encouraged to apply
(textiles, dance, theatre, ceramics, paint, poetry, philosophy, words,
audio, projection, documentary, film, performance, music, you-name-it).
The most important thing is to be willing to engage with the landscape,
and with other artists, to find a conversation between the process/end
result, and the chosen site.

Submissions Due : May 21, 2018

Residency Dates : August 16 – 23, 2018

Festival Dates : August 25 – 26, 2018

Vous êtes un artiste ou un professionnel étranger de la culture et séjournez à Paris dans le cadre de votre travail ? Vous pouvez déposer une demande de logement à la Cité internationale universitaire de Paris en ligne : http://workflow.ciup.fr/citeu/site/login.php

Certains logements sont spécifiquement adaptés à l’activité artistique : la Cité internationale dispose de deux ateliers-logements pour artistes plasticiens et six studios avec cabine insonorisée pour les musiciens. Les différentes maisons de la Cité internationale peuvent également accueillir des artistes et professionnels de la culture en fonction de la disponibilité de leurs logements (sans espace de travail). Le tarif des logements varient selon le type, le confort et la durée du séjour.

 Si votre nationalité est représentée par une maison de la Cité internationale, renseignez-vous auprès d’elle pour connaître la démarche à suivre. Cf. http://www.ciup.fr “les maisons”.

Si cette maison représentant votre nationalité n’a pas de disponibilité, votre demande pourra être transmise aux autres maisons de la CIUP, sous réserve de la validation de la demande par la CIUP.

Les statuts de la cité prévoient en effet que pour y être admis, la venue de l’artiste doit s’inscrire dans le cadre d’un projet précis soutenu institutionnellement (venue sur invitation d’une structure culturelle française, ou sur envoi d’une structure culturelle du pays de résidence de l’artiste, pour une réalisation spécifique). Cette institution doit soutenir financièrement le projet, et donc le séjour de l’artiste à Paris.

D’autre part, la cité prévoit dans ses statuts que les artistes soient étrangers ou en mobilité internationale.

Atelier Topaz – résidence 
Opasatika, Ontario, Canada

Le lieu
Situés au cœur de la forêt boréale, les Ateliers Topaz sont à la fois un lieu de retraite et un centre de création pour artistes, toutes disciplines confondues. L’endroit parfait pour la réflexion, l’évasion. Le groupement d’édifices fait 900 mètres carrés et repose sur 14 hectares face à la route Transcanadienne. Il donne sur un étang de deux hectares. Topaz c’est la « Route 66 » dans le nord de l’Ontario. L’endroit, modeste et nostalgique, rappelle aussi les grandes épopées de la colonisation francophone de l’Ontario. Ces studios de création ou cette résidence d’artistes, endroit idéal pour les arts visuels, sont situés au centre du Canada, à mi-chemin entre l’Atlantique et le Pacifique, là où les étoiles deviennent les topazes de la nuit.

Ce qu’on offre
D’abord l’espace et, l’espace de travail déterminés selon les besoins de l’artiste. Les espaces polyvalents permettent d’y faire de la peinture, de la sculpture, de l’installation, etc. L’atelier de menuiserie, le Bar à clou, est équipé des outils de base. Un magasin d’objets trouvés est disponible autant pour l’inspiration que pour l’utilisation dans une œuvre. Le peintre apporte ses pinceaux, le musicien son instrument et l’écrivain son ordi.

Les personnes qui séjournent aux Ateliers Topaz jouissent de l’accès à la cuisine et sont responsables de préparer leurs repas. Toutefois Laurent peut aussi leur cuisiner de petits plats typiquement canadiens-français aux besoins ou aux désirs. 

Topaz possède deux suites avec lit double et une chambre avec lit simple. Chacune possède sa salle de toilette avec douche. Ces installations évoquent admirablement le style des années 1960. 

Pour la baignade, le Lac des Cœurs se situe à deux kilomètres à l’est. Pour le canotage ou la pèche, la rivière Opasatika est deux kilomètres à l’ouest. Pour se déplacer, il y a de vieux vélos ou la marche. Pour un frais très raisonnable, votre hôte peut aussi vous conduire ou organiser un déplacement vers Kapuskasing à l’est ou vers Hearst à l’ouest. 

Les matériaux d’artistes ne sont pas disponibles dans la région. Il est donc important de faire vos achats avant votre séjour, à moins que vous travailliez avec des matériaux que l’on peut se procurer dans des magasins ordinaires ou même en nature.

Budget: $120,000 CAD
Submit by: 4pm PT. June 28, 2018

The City of Kelowna, through its Public Art Program, announces the commissioning of a site-specific artwork to be located within a public plaza and forecourt space of the newly constructed Kelowna Police Services Building (KPSB). The artist is to be selected through a two stage process, as determined by the City’s public art selection committee.

The KPSB serves as the home for the local Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) detachment, as well as City of Kelowna staff that are responsible for city wide policing services and community outreach programs. A key design component of the new building is a public plaza / forecourt space that serves as the building’s main entrance. The artwork will be highly visible from the street, as well as from inside the building’s main reception area, and will serve as the main feature element within this pedestrianized space.

It is the collaboration between the City of Kelowna and the RCMP that makes for a unique opportunity to acknowledge the contributions of the Kelowna Police Services in creating a safe, healthy and vibrant community. No theme or material for the artwork has been determined and it can be either abstract or figurative. As part of an expression of interest artists are encouraged to explore their own ideas and thoughts in the form of a written brief.

A maximum budget of $120,000 CAD has been allocated for the commissioning of the artwork. This sum is inclusive of all Artists’ fees, technical consulting, insurance requirements, fabrication, installation, documentation, travel expenses and all other related costs. This call is the first of a two stage selection process. The call-out submission does not require the preparation of a proposal. Those artists interested are invited to submit their expression of interest to the City of Kelowna prior to the deadline closure 4pm PT. June 28, 2018.

Artist Eligibility and Document Link:

This competition is open to all professional artists and artist-led teams as defined by the Canadian Council for the Arts.

All enquiries pertaining to this call-out are to be submitted electronically by registering and accessing the project link https://kelowna.bonfirehub.ca/opportunities/13838 and going to the corresponding webpage, and using the Message section.
