Incubate Open Film
There has been a big response to our call for work for the Open Film program 2012, resulting in much more films than we could possibly screen in the available screening time.
So we made a selection, that resulted in 5 film blocks filled with absolutely great, original, cutting-edge films. Fiction, documentary, experimental, animation, and films that have a bit of everything: it's all there!
YOU, the audience, can participate in the Open Film program as well by bringing out your votes for which film should win the very first Incubate Film Award! The Award will be handed out on sunday 16-09, 20:30 in the Rode Salon @ De NWE Vorst.

Maker = Jury = Audience
Why are we doing this? We want to involve the Incubate audience actively in our festival. With social media like Twitter and Facebook we got the possibility to directly voice our opinion about everything, all the time. The casting of maker, curator, jury and audience is already history. With the development of the internet and social media, we all get the chance to play the part that fits us best.
We can play the part of the maker and upload our video's to youtube or vimeo, or play the part of curator by selecting video's and creating a blog or channel. We can play the part of the jury by 'liking' a video, which may result in the video to go 'viral' and to be seen by a great amount of people. With the Incubate Open Film program, we create a similar situation within the festival.
