the inaugural SOLID SCREEN FESTIVAL 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------
THE INAUGURAL SOLID SCREEN FESTIVAL was in July 2014


cyberTribe was pleased to present the SOLID SCREEN FESTIVAL which was held near Ravenshoe in Far North Queensland on Sunday the 20th July, 2014.

SOLID Screen is an International Indigenous Festival of the screen, the first of which was held at Innot Hot Springs and open to the public. 

Solid Screen includes a range of work from screen queens that specialise in a range of contemporary practices. The screenings respond to important transformations that have reconfigured opportunities for experimental arts, remix and media practice, internationally, in recent times.

We aim to deliver Indigenous specific screen components to allow opportunities for Indigenous screen artists and artsworkers to develop professionally, develop greater understanding of new media and inter-disciplinary practices, and gain critical feedback on personal projects.

The Far North of Australia has a great depth of Indigenous arts practice, with a prolific visual arts industry, and we wish to compliment this strength and provide opportunities and experiences for Indigenous practitioners to engage with other mediums for expression, and also explore, document and celebrate screen history in the established forms of Television, Film making and other experimental and Performing Arts. 

In the Far North there are also a number of number of Indigenous artists already working in performance, installation, video and photography mediums, providing a great networking opportunity for the creation of future works.
