The 11th edition of the Nos Yeux Grands Ouverts will take place at Le Pavillon des Canaux, Paris on February 2018. This art film and experimental video festival will explore the theme « My (re)view »
Since 2008, the MAACASSO association organizes each year an international art film festival named Nos Yeux Grands Ouverts (NYGO). This competition brings together projects from many young film makers with the objective of highlighting and encouraging the blossoming of new talents in audiovisual creation. On the occasion of this eleventh edition, the association is searching for young artists with art films projects to submit to the selection of our NYGO jury.
This year, the candidates will work on the theme “My (re)view”,
following in particular the semantics of “My review” and “My view”. Trying to perceive, to get to know through the eyes, to direct one’s gaze towards something or someone in order to discover, to note or examine, to judge, to consider in a certain way a person or an object, such are the numerous definitions of viewing or reviewing and by extension, the notion of being viewed or reviewed. Moreover, these notions are further enriched by the fact that they include the contemplation of a reality, and even more so in the light of our modern society, that the artist can be engaged for the society, standing with Humanity, with his humanity.
It is our wish that the art films presented be the intense expression of the artists’ visions and that they participate in “opening the eyes” of a wider audience, through their creations combining
esthetics and engagement.
