UMBRA Light Festival is a new audiovisual event in Vitoria-Gasteiz celebrating its second edition in February next year.
UMBRA is launching an open call for all audiovisual artists working the field of Light Art.
If you feel like exhibiting your work in the beautiful Basque Country, surrounded by lovely people and delicious food… Well, this might just do the trick!
The festival showcases projection mapping, audiovisual installations and light sculptures in order to develop a dialogue between new media and the urban context of the Basque Country capital city.
The participants have total freedom regarding the proposal theme. However proposals addressing environmental issues and/or United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be highly valued by the jury.
These will be the main focus of the 2021 edition of UMBRA Light Festival. The installations will be selected accordingly to the sculptural value and interactive implementation of art and light.
The selection process will be finalized within one month after the submission deadline. All finalists will be notified individually by e-mail
