Abandon Normal Devices is a new festival featuring a series of screenings in cinemas and alternative venues, spilling into the imaginations and streets of the city. We are now actively seeking feature films, short films and artists moving image. Thematically the festival examines the physical, social and artistic notions of normality in the 21st Century and will champion filmmakers who take a provocative and idiosyncratic approach. We want to celebrate cinematic trouble-makers, innovative international filmmaking and artists who offer a transgressive take on bodies and identity. There are no restrictions on budget, genre or style. We welcome narrative, documentary, live action, animation, hybrids and all shades in between. Our main selection criteria is seeking something that will engage our audiences in debate around questions of normality.
