the rebel child of
futuristic SHORT FILMs competition to imagine better futures with the help of technology.
A call for filmmakers, entrepreneurs, tech developers, designers and artists who take active roles in building impact solutions for a better world.
WHAT IF we all believed
THAT a better future
SXF:Visions22 is an ally of "Design Futures", the transdisciplinary methodology that enables us to experience the future scenarios (designs/visions). It improves the quality of our decisions from the present to transition into the futures we want.
At SXF: Visions22 we see the possible futures as stories we depict in the form of short films. Through the a/v pieces, we will analyze, plan, and build the future we want in a co-designed and participative way.
Our parnter in crime.
Technology is the main character of most dystopian futures, fair enough, but the typical dystopian view has made us forget about the power of technological innovation for saving lives and also our planet.
British science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke, author of Profiles of the Future: An Inquiry into the Limits of the Possible, is known for the sentence “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
Creative and rebel minds:
we need your stories!
Ok, you've got my attention!
Now, be more specific.
Participants are encouraged to submit 5 to 9 minutes short films (live action and animation) depicting potentials forms of cooperation between humans and emerging tech to foster positive impact.
Every year, the 10 most voted stories will make it into "SXF:Visions22" the movie.
Think of it as a sort of "Love Actually" but between humans and machines, or a "Black Mirror", but in positive.
Finally, a jury will select the winning project amongst the 10 finalists.
The winner short film will receive $3,000 prize.
