Cine al Patio - Open Call for films
One of the most profound changes over the course of the past year is the way in which audiences have been able to experience art. The closure of cinemas especially has left a hole in the heart of shared social experience, the incommunicable connections that are generated between viewer and screen severed somewhat in the solitariness of our homes. Yet as lockdowns are eased and we return to things familiar, we here at Cine al patio hope to reestablish those relationships with a programme that is dedicated to new ways of experiencing the world.
Cine al patio presents a monthly selection of short films in the unique outdoor setting of La Casa del Árbol Cultural Centre in the heart of Buenos Aires. Our screenings take place in a relaxed atmosphere, catered to an audience eager to experience high-level artistic content from a variety of culture and genres.
We are interested in receiving entries from all manner of fields, be it fiction or documentary, experimental or narrative, live-action or animated, or a combination of these.
The winner of each month's audience vote will win a digital poster that has been created especially by our award-winning graphic-design team.
The aim of Cine al patio is to ultimately connect audiences through a shared love of cinema, to reconcile people through the power of stories told over a mere matter of minutes.
We very much hope that you’ll share that experience with us.

Anti-lockdown virtual exhibition - are you questioning lockdown at all?
This is a new call for artists to critique lockdown through art. We have had an interesting show of work created during lockdown, but now we are looking for work that specifically critiques lockdown as a concept.
Little discussion of lockdown as a method has been seen in the mainstream media, this is an outlet for artists to comment on a system that has been imposed on populations without any debate.
Please submit work that examines lockdown.

Hong Kong | Open call for art | Virtual exhibition
【Theme: Metaphysical Ging Zik 形上驚蟄】
The A R T • 9 is pleased to announce an open call for art opportunity for the coming online juried art exhibition in mid April, “Metaphysical Ging Zik 形上驚蟄”. The exhibition will focus on the negative side of humanity and morality in our modern life.
“Ging Zik” is a Cantonese term which refers to the insects that are awakened from winter sleep and the soil, and it serves as a symbol of the start of the first season in a year. The curatorial committee favours any works that can explore and respond to the rise of the darkness and toxicity from human nature, modern humanity and morality with a metaphysical approach.
