O-C-I-N (Online Cinema - Interactive Narratives)is a new project environment going down to
experimental forms of cinema in an online context.
Until now, the spaces of Cinematheque were mainly presenting streaming video works of different kind and interactivity played basically rather a certain role concerning interface design than a conceptional component of the art works themselves.
Deadline April 1
Cinema_C and "O-C-I-N" will focus on the conceptional role of interactivity
as a basic component for a new film creation
by involving the user actively in the process and progress of story telling.
The participating artist or artists collaborative
are free to choose and develop their story and the specific way
they allow/enforce the user to take influence on the progress of the story
in a conceptional and technological concern,
and these represent also the basic conditions for creating the art work
Although, the call is mainly focussing on two digital output formats
i.e. Flash .swf and Shockwave Director .dcr,
which may include all possible media files (digital video etc),
also other Internet compatible and cross-platform programming environments may be considered
The artist/artists collectives are invited to submit one work only and make the work
online available for preview or download,
once the work is selected it has to be submitted completely including all
files, so that Cinematheque is able to post and host the work online.
Cinematheque is neither commssioning, nor aquiring any work,
but hosting the art work "only", the best way to make
the works available for permanent to the online audience.

The artists/artists collective keep all rights on their works.
