Call for projects SIC 2022

SoundImageCulture (SIC)

Cassandre Joly, Nobody's Baby, 2020/21.

SoundImageCulture (SIC) is a one year program in Brussels that accompanies filmmakers and artists in the development of their film or audiovisual project. SIC 2022 starts in January 2022 and runs until December 2022. Our selection is based on an audiovisual project proposal submitted by the candidate. Submit your project by September 11, 2021.

SIC has been thought by filmmakers for filmmakers and audiovisual artists in order to help them break the solitude of the creation process.

Based on the idea of thinking by doing, on discussions around concrete audiovisual materials, a group of coaches - renown artists/filmmakers - and a group of peers will follow your project in a supportive and professional environment.
We look for projects that are authentic and push the borders of audiovisual language.
Our aim is to support the participant to develop a radical artistic vision. Aesthetic and ethical reflections are at the center.

What we offer you: Filmmakers, artists and thinkers brainstorming collectively on your project, personal mentoring, encounters with international guests allowing new viewpoints on your project, masterclasses and seminars focusing on contemporary works and sound design, as well as a production seminar introducing the local production facilities and infrastructures. A public presentation of your work at the end of the cycle.

SIC's team of coaches for 2022 are: Vivianne Perelmuter, Effi Weiss, Amir Borenstein (Effi & Amir), Mary Jiménez, Jorge Léon, Didier Volckaert, Jelena Jureša & Moon Blaisse. Patrick Codenys for sound, Alice Lemaire with a production workshop.

International guests will be invited according to the selected projects. Former guests include: Carlos Casas, Ben Russell, Rosine Mbakam, Stoffel Debuysere, Alia Syed, Emmanuel Marre, Louis Henderson, Britt Hatzius, Chris Wright, David Toop, Eleonore de Montesquieu, Els Dietvorst, Ergin Cavusoglu, Genevieve Yue, Itsushi Kawase, Heff Silva, Mira Sanders, Pieter Geenen, Ursula Biemann, Wapke Feenstra...
