S i n c e 2 0 0 8 , t h e M A A C A S S O association organizes each year, an international art film festival called N Y G O f o r “ N o s Ye u x G r a n d s Ouverts” (weach means Our Eyes Wide O p e n ) .
T h e f e s t i v a l c r e a t e s a competition between young artists. Our aim is to promote and highlight the new talents of the contemporary audiovisual creation. For the 10th edition, on March the 1st, our association is looking for young artists with an art film project that will be submitted to the judgement of the NYGO jury. This year, we invite all the candidates to work on the theme “Resonance”.
This theme can be treated in a sonor, visual or conceptual way because it can be understood as a reflect, or an impact with consequences. The resonance is a link between two elements, an impact of one to another, an answer from one to another. The artist must express a resonance in its film, but its goal can also be the achievement of its own resonance into the public’s appreciation, to create a link between the artwork’s meaning and the spectator’s feeling. We want the art films to be a mean for the artists to spread their ideas, visions, concerns and feelings as a shock wave on the public, and a canal to interconnect individuals.
The NYGO Award: The first prize: 800 € The second prize: 500 € The third prize: 300 €
